Summer Literature Class: Fairy Tales

Open to 8th Students through Adults

Date: July 8th-12th

Time: 8:45 AM – 10:45 AM

Cost: $60 for the entire week

Literature is an essential part of a classical education, but where does one start?  With the ‘building blocks of stories’.  The Great Books are made up of these building blocks and understanding them is the key to understanding authors like Dante and Shakespeare.  Our two summer classes cover myths and fairy tales, two of the most important of these building blocks.

Join us for Fairy Tales:
How do we read these tales of wonder, violence and strangeness?  And how could they possibly be connected to The Greatest Story Ever Told?  The answers to these questions are sure to surprise and delight you!  Our week long Fairy Tales class will cover why and how to read these often misunderstood stories and the many ways they have influenced the greatest writers of all time.

Location: Chesterton Academy of Omaha (School building behind St. Mary’s, 36th & Q Streets)

Instructor: Mrs. Jessette Berggren, Literature teacher at Chesterton Academy of Omaha

You and your children are invited to attend the 8:00 mass at St. Mary’s before the morning camps. Following mass, we will offer a light breakfast. A teacher will be at the southeast church door to meet the children at 7:50 if a parent is not attending. Otherwise, children may be dropped off at the school between 8:35-8:45.
Please enter our parking lot on Q Street and exit on 36th. We will be using our new school entrance under the awning, the second door, on 36th Street.
