The Great American Novel
Recommended grade levels - 9th through 12th
Teacher: Lilli Witczak
Time: Wednesdays 10:00 - 11:15 a.m.
Date: 6 weeks in a row starting June 1.
The goal of this class is for each student to write a 50,000 word novel in 4 weeks. Yup, that’s a lot of writing. What
better time to take on such a monumental challenge than summer. Think about it. When your student is asked, “So, what
did you do this summer?” He/she will be able to reply, “Oh nothing much. I just wrote a novel.”
The first week of the class will be a warm up and pre-writing meeting to strategize and prepare for the task. Then the
race begins. While the novel is being written over four weeks, the class will critique excerpts from fellow students’ books,
listen to and make suggestions, and learn a few rhetorical tools. The last class meeting is to strategize and celebrate.
Book Required: No Plot? No Problem! Revised and Expanded Edition: A Low-stress, High-velocity Guide to Writing a
Novel in 30 Days by Chris Baty.
Fees: $90 for the six week class.

Students will learn to play the game of Chess and learn winning strategies.
This program is designed to include a parent, but a parent is not required.
There are many advantages of two Chess students in the same household.
Chess is a wonderful game that helps develop mental discipline, analytical skills, strategic thinking, and
do better academically. Studies have shown that students studying chess demonstrated a marked
development of their verbal and math aptitudes. This class is a great way to have fun, improve in
Chess and make new friends.
About Coach Jeff: Jeff Schwartz has played tournament chess from the time he was a freshman in
college. Coach Jeff is a Life Member of the United States Chess Federation and an active member of
the Arcadia Chess Club. Coach Jeff has taught Chess since 2007, helping hundreds of students
mature in the world of Chess, while he uses an individualized approach for each student.

DOG SITTING SERVICES
Hi everyone -
As vacation season starts to roll around, I wanted to let you know that if you are looking for a dog-sitter, we can watch your dog in our home
while you are away.
We homeschool, so my two kids and I will spend all day with your furry friend. They will be treated like family. We love dogs. My husband
and I have had dogs our whole lives. Your dog will receive excellent care, love and companionship while they stay with us. We have been a
foster family to a mama dog and her 5 puppies. All our dogs have been rescue dogs. We can't wait to love your dog!! We have a fenced in
backyard, a great neighborhood for walks and two parks close by where your furry companion can run and catch balls.
I have two children. My son is 15 and my daughter is 13. They both love dogs and will make sure your doggie gets lots of love and
attention. We send you pictures and texts daily showing you how much fun your doggie is having. While you are having a vacation, your
furry friend can be on vacation too!
We have a dog - a 10 year old female mixed Collie/Golden Retriever, 3 cats and a goldfish.
We live in Duarte. We are happy to set up a Meet & Greet for you to come by and meet us and see where your Furry Friend will be staying.
