Astronomy Club
The Athena Community Astronomy Club usually have their telescopes set up along the Summerside Baywalk by the Shipyard Market, on clear Wednesday evenings for public viewings. The astronomers love to teach everyone about the stars, so follow their Facebook page for announcements and stop by sometime!

Kids Links
We’ve added a new Kids Links page on here! We’re launching this page to help kids and parents find educational links. The links the grade 4-6’s were referred to on the activity sheets can be found there, along with others. Resources for parents can be found at the bottom. We will continue to gather more links so our kids can easily find the games and websites they use at school. Please contact greenfieldhomeandschool@gmail.com to recommend educational websites that would be good to add.

*Printable PDFs of the astronomy activity sheets can be found on our Downloads page.
