Inspiration Programs for Fall 2015

Join our faculty and staff  as they inspire children to try new things and enjoy learning many different skills. These not-for-credit, just-for-fun programs allow students to explore in the company of other students who are interested in the topic. All programs are open to children from the wider Steamboat community, as well as to Emerald's own students. Each program has a maximum enrollment, so be sure to get your form in early! The dates for each program are different so be sure to check the schedule for each individual program.   All classes are held at Emerald Mountain School, 818 Oak St.  A light snack will be provided.

Have fun learning a classic game while enhancing your math skills, as well as learning about odds & probability, how to strategize, and apply critical thinking. 


Emerald Mountain School parent Terry Brown is a lifelong cribbage player and math aficionado; three years ago, he started teaching cribbage to small groups. He noticed that they immediately took to the game and enjoyed both working in teams and competing against each other. They especially loved competing (and very occasionally, winning) against him, and the fact that their math and reasoning skills increased along with their cribbage time did not decrease their love of playing! 


Cribbage is a great family game that your child will want to continue to play at home; once everyone gets comfortable with the rules, it is a rare game that can be played fairly equally across many ages, and it’s very portable for traveling! 


Sign up soon. Minimum class size is four students, and maximum class size is 14 students.
