Today in our After School Program we had our students make their own Harry Potter style wand pencils! It's amazing what can be done with a hot glue gun, a Ticonderoga pencil, a few gems, a little paint, glitter, and a child's imagination. ✏️🎨✨⚡️ #willitselementarycharterschool #afterschoolprogram #afterschoolprograms #afterschoolrocks #afterschoolactivities #afterschoolmatters #afterschoolart #elementaryafterschoolprogram #elementarymydearwatson #harrypotter #harrypotterwand #harrypotterwands #harrypottercrafts #willits #mendocinocounty #earlyeducation #earlyeducationmatters #wecs #charterschool #elementaryeducation

A very special #throwback: Moon Meals Founder @laforcebaker with students from the After School Matters program in Chicago. What an amazing experience! #dogood

Today, as their second lesson in introduction to ceramics, our After School Program students learned how to make a simple pinch pot. These kiddos are kindergarten through 5th grade and are already showing amazing knowledge retention as well as enthusiasm. They make it all so worth it! ❤️🏺🎨 They are able to discuss why it's important to work the air bubbles out of your clay, why your piece needs to be fully dry before firing, and basic techniques and skills like keeping your hands and clay moist while working. 5-10 year olds! They blow my mind and fill my heart!

We're starting a new feature to highlight women who have done amazing things in STEM fields. Nina Tandon is a biomedical engineer who is changing the world of cell science. She co-founded and is the CEO of EpiBone, a company that grows bones for skeletal reconstruction. It allows practitioners to repair bone defects in people by using the patient’s stem cells to grow new healthy bones in a lab environment. She was named a senior TED Fellow and one of Fast Company's Most Creative People of 2012. Tandon was a recipient of Marie Claire's Women on Top Awards in 2013. She was also named a Wired innovation fellow and a 2015 Global Thinker by Foreign Policy.

We had THE BEST cast party today celebrating our @globalfestindy performance! Cheers to this Brave Crew!

So many kids, so much praise. WINGS kids couldn’t post their positive feedback fast enough. Scroll for good vibes.

#TriviaTuesday: Did you know yellow and orange colors have actually been there throughout the spring and summer, but we haven’t been able to see them? The deep green color of chlorophyll, which helps plants absorb life-giving sunlight, hides the other colors. In the fall, trees break down the green pigments and nutrients stored in the leaves. The nutrients are shuttled into the roots for reuse in the spring. As the leaves lose their chlorophyll, those other pigments become visible to the human eye. • • • • •

Sometimes you’ll have to have tough conversations with a students’ parental figure. It becomes easier when you’ve developed a trusting relationship with them ahead of time. Need tips? Contact us; we can help. .

Globalfest was such a huge movement of inclusion, hope, and celebration in our community and our brave kiddos did a fantastic job kicking off the event. They made us so proud! Thanks to the stellar team of parents, staff, and volunteers who put on this next level event. It’s a day we will all never forget for all the best reasons! #globalfestindy #thinkglobal #cfi70
