The kids of Children’s School will participate in various activities related to the “Wild, Wild West” this week.

Children will be making all kinds of western-themed crafts, “Wanted” posters, hobbyhorses, sheriff badges and cowboy hats. They also will be learning square dances and a hoedown.

Jay Stetzer, a music teacher from the Rochester area, will sing songs and tell stories to the kids. He will give a performance for all ages within Children’s School on Friday morning.

“He’s a fabulous musician, and we’re really excited he’s back for his fourth year with us,” said Gretchen Jervah, curriculum coordinator for the Children’s School.

Robbin Gourley, from Highlights magazine, will be visiting Thursday morning. She is an illustrator and the author of four books. She will be demonstrating her art with the children.

“It should be a really entertaining week for the kids,” Jervah said.
