EMH PE Kickball, different locations, 3 sessions: $21, Prek- 12th

Dear Parents/Guardians:
Playing kickball is a great way for your children to jumpstart their exercise regime. Not only is it a fun game to play, kickball can burn from 300-600 calories in an hour depending on the player’s weight and how intense the game is for the individual. Running the bases, diving for balls, and throwing out runners are all great ways to burn calories and boost metabolism. This sport is appropriate for all age groups Prek-12th.
There are only three (3) sessions in December and the cost is $21. If you don’t have an account with us yet, please visit: If you already take our classes just log on to register at:
If you plan to use school funds now or in the next few months please order early with us and request your funding to be sent right away. Since schools close down early for December and it takes awhile for them to catch up in January, there can be delays in clearing your child if you wait too long. If you also have a full deposit on your EMH account there will be no interruption in your child/children’s participation even if the schools are delayed in handling funding requests.
Learn more about sibling discounts for those parents paying out-of-pocket with three (3) or more children at:

Bilingual Unit Studies - $50 monthly tuition, 50 minutes, no registration fees

With the Bible as our foundation and the use of English and Spanish, we plan to explore a specific topic through a variety of subjects. Depending on the topic these subjects can include: Science, History, Geography, Arts, etc. We will practice conversation; reading comprehension; writing; research; and collaboration. The goal of these studies is to help the students ease into thinking in Spanish and use this language in their daily life. The percentage of the time using English during the class should decrease throughout the year as the students feel more comfortable and grow in their domination of the Spanish language. 

The following are the topics and themes planned for the Spring 2016 semester (subject to change):
January and February – Creación: Light, Sky, Soil and Plants, the Solar System, Fish and Birds, Land Animals, the Human Being, and Resting.
March and April – Ecosistemas and Hábitat: Weather, plants and animals in the Tundra, Desert, Forrest, Jungle, Prairie, a Cave, a Swamp, and a Creek. 
May – El Cuerpo Humano: The Five Senses; Cardiovascular, Respiratory, Muscular, Skeletal and Digestive Systems; and Nutrition and Exercise. 


Intermediate Spanish - $40 monthly tuition, 50 minutes, no registration fees

Christ centered classes taught by a native Hispanic teacher. Your children will memorize Bible verses in Spanish and start learning how to share their faith using this language.  We use songs, games, crafts, cooking and other tools to make leaning Spanish fun and effective. We practice conversation; reading comprehension; writing; listening comprehension; Grammar; and learn cultural and historical facts. With the use of technology, your students will keep practicing their Spanish speaking skills during the week.

Pride & Prejudice at Performing Arts Center Auditorium at Sacramento City College

When Jane Austen created the aloof, arrogant Mr. Darcy, she could hardly have imagined she was dreaming up one of the most eligible bachelors of the next few centuries. Despite his irritating superiority complex, Fitzwilliam Darcy's ability to listen and change his ways to win over the woman he loves have captured hearts for more than 200 years. It doesn't hurt that his match in Pride and Prejudice is the spirited, clever Elizabeth Bennett. With her intelligence, beauty, loyalty and kindness, she's got it all. Despite all that, her pride could prevent her from finding true love (and financial security) with the countryside's most sought-after single gentleman. City Theatre's delightfully romantic adaptation of one of the great love stories in literature will whisk you away from Sacramento to the English countryside, leaving you starry-eyed and sighing all the way home. 

Sac, and other venues, Two weeks before the mast program: Tall ships

Our Two Weeks Before the Mast program is an opportunity to experience the life of a tall ship sailor. For two weeks, you’ll live aboard one of our vessels learning the basics of knots, sail theory, traditional and modern maintenance skills, and maritime history.
No two experiences are the same. To read about past volunteers’ experiences in this unique program, click here, watch the trailer for the documentary The Passage, and check out  Baggy Wrinkles, a series of comics created by tall ship sailor Lucy Bellwood.
