SCOTCH PLAINS/FANWOOD, NJ -- Recently, students from School One Elementary School in Scotch Plains-Fanwood had the opportunity to participate in the PTA's 18th Annual Beyond School Explorers (BSE) program.
BSE is a parent-organized and taught after school enrichment program designed to provide fun, interesting and educational classes to School One students in grades K-4. All classes are organized and taught by parents and volunteers from the School One community.
This year, 247 students participated in the program, which took place for one hour after school for the four Fridays in February. Twenty-one classes were offered including Broadway Bound, Day of Code, Fun and Games, Fun with Chocolate, Knitting, Simple Science, Star Wars, Yoga with Glitter and Games and Woodworking. Students who participated paid a nominal fee for materials and took home items they made themselves including bird houses, t-shirts, scarves and yummy treats. There were over 50 parent, 15 high school and 30 middle school volunteers who were creative, thoughtful, fun and hard working. 
BSE is an exciting event that the students and parents look forward to each year!
