    Message Board

    NCAARD is proud to offer several new programs for 3rd through 5th graders this session

    Maren McClellend is a John Glenn Highschool Senior and a Girl Scout working toward her Gold Award. As part of the requirements for the award she's offering "Cultural Connections" where students will explore the cultures of the world through games, crafts and snacks.

    Tyler Smith, a sophomore at Muskingum University and one of NCAARD's fall program assistants, offered to teach Spanish after helping the Writer's Club members with a project last semester. He'll be offering "Spanish Language Lessons" where the students will have fun learning Spanish while learning about the cultures of different Spanish-speaking countries through fun games and activities.

    We are also pleased to add "Group Voice Lessons" taught by Mary Cae Abrams, a certified music teacher. The lessons will focus on breath support, vocal range, tone quality, intonation, scales and intervals, reading music, posture, facial expression, and performance.

    Please check under the "Kids" page on this website for program dates and times as well as a list of our favorite programs returning for another session! Register early - most of the programs are limited to 10 or 15 students.

    ********* Keep up to date on new programs and weather cancellations on our Facebook page. You can find us under "New Concord Area Arts and Recreation." Be sure to "Like" NCAARD and "Share" us with your friends!


    Here it is!!!! The website has been updated and the programs are listed. Please sign up now for the classes you'd like - they will fill up quickly. You can register online by tapping the "Register" button at the top of this page. You can also pay online by selecting the "Buy Now" button at the bottom of each page. Be sure to list the class or classes you're registering for in the "notes" section. We'll be sending registration forms home for some of the children's classes but many of the classes fill up before we send the forms out!

    Class sizes are listed under each program. We need to limit the number of registrants to provide you with the quality program that you expect from NCAARD! Because of the volume of programs and people our correspondance is through email. We also update the Facebook page regularly. It takes a little longer to return phone calls. You should receive confirmation of your payment and registration within a day of your submission. If you don't hear from us within a day or two, please email NCAARD at ncaard@newconcord-oh.gov to insure your registration was received. We don't want to miss you!

    We look forward to seeing you soon!

    Thank You!!
