Students take enrichment classes
Over 150 Harrisonville students recently had the opportunity to participate in a variety of enrichment classes through the annual Fantasia program.
The 33rd annual Fantasia event took place Dec. 1 at Harrisonville High School and Cass Career Center.
Students in grades fourth through eighth chose from 16 different classes. Each class was one hour and students could enroll in two. Classes offered this year included Henna Design, Medieval Combat, Scratch Foam Printmaking, Cooking for Kids, Flags, French, Hanging Horticulture, Small Scrapbooks, Got Spirit? (cheerleading), Lights, Camera, Action! (improv), Honey-making and Beekeeping, Music Makers, Super Sewing, Hands-on Robotics, Holiday Crafting with Perler Beads, Wood Puzzlers, and Hapkido.
Parents of Harrisonville elementary and middle school students also took part in Fantasia by participating in a seminar entitled “Keeping Kids Safe Online” by Officer Steve Nichols. The session was sponsored by the Harrisonville PTO.
Fantasia was presented by HATS, the Harrisonville Academically Talented Students program, and organized by HATS Facilitator, Laura Frees. Community volunteers, as well as school district staff and high school students, taught the classes.
