Ripple Effect is a free, weekly, after-school art class at the Batavia public elementary schools that focuses on integrating science, technology, engineering, and math with art. These classes have been generously funded by a grant from the Dunham Foundation and will be available from 2016-2019.

JB Nelson and HC Storm schools will be the first schools to have the program. Over the next three years, all of the BPS elementary schools will be included.

During this 8-week course, students will create cool crustaceans, Fibonacci spirals, Roman arches, and 3-D books! Both art and STEM vocabulary will be reinforced with each fun project.

The instructors are from Water Street Studios in Batavia.

Note: 3rd grade enrollment is now over. 4th grade enrollment is closed for JB Nelson, but remains open for HC Storm. 5th grade enrollment remains open for both schools (as of 9/14/2016).

Ripple Effect Policies

Students enrolled in the Ripple Effect are expected to abide by the following rules in order to maintain their place in the program:

  • Respect for teachers, students, and helpers is to be given at all times.
  • Loud or unruly behavior makes learning difficult for others and will not be tolerated.
  • Attendance for the entire 8-week program is expected. Please do not enroll your child if there are conflicts with scheduling since there is limited space.
  • Water Street Studios reserves the right to photograph all enrolled students and their artwork and use these images in promotional materials without the expectation of compensation.
