First Friday Family Fun!

Join your friends for a virtual fun gathering, where we will play and laugh, learn and create, and have fun while getting to know our community a little bit better each time.


Origami Family Fun Black Friday

Looking for ways to entertain the kids over the break this November? Please join us for an origami Zoom session with author Joel Stern on Friday, November 27th from 11 a.m. to 11:45 a.m.

Students will need 10 sheets of letter-size paper. If they like, they can also make 5 squares from letter-size paper. The two methods are described here. They should keep the part that they've trimmed off, as they’ll be using those long skinny sheets for something.

There's no need to buy special origami paper for the workshop. 

Please RSVP to receive the Zoom info for the event and help the organizers prepare. You only need to reserve one ticket per household. 

The workshop is FREE, but donations are always welcome! Come join in on the fun and support Open School at the same time. To learn more about Joel Stern, click here.
