The STAR Program
By Estela M.
I am going to tell you about STAR. STAR is an after school program and STAR is fun. Every Friday is really fun. On Friday, we watch movies and play the Wii. Some classes stay inside and other classes play the Wii. There is a coordinator and the coordinator chooses the best class to use the Wii. Every single day we do PE. PE is when we exercise and we play a game. We also have iPads. We use them when we are done with homework. We have clubs. What we do in clubs is have fun. There's art clubs, science, and culture. In the culture club is when we hear about cities and countries. Art is when we paint and draw. Science is when we learn all about the planets. That's the stuff that I know aobut STAR.
