Jasper Co. Academy of Magic at Newton Public Library

Monday, November 28, 2022

United Way of Jasper County and Newton Public Library are teaming up to make each month a little more magical for Jasper County youth.
The two organizations will be hosting Jasper Co. Academy of Magic classes once a month during the 2022-2023 school year. The classes will be on early out and no school days to allow children 8-12 years old to participate. The Academy of Magic classes will feature the award-winning and nationally recognized Discover Magic curriculum which disguises a STEM and arts program as magic classes.
(Learn more about the curriculum at
Each class offered by Jasper Co. Academy of Magic will feature a magic trick and teach one of the eight traits of a “true magician” – respect, preparedness, authenticity, enthusiasm, creativity, humility, confidence and giving. While children will learn card tricks, make things disappear and much more, they will actually be building self-confidence, improving communication skills, using their creativity and developing friendships.
Classes are independent and children do not need to attend all classes. Participants can pick and choose which classes to attend.
Registration for Academy of Magic is $10 per class per child and and includes a magic trick, magic folder, supplies and a snack. The program is being sponsored by United Way of Jasper County, Newton Public Library, Friends of Newton Library with the help of Discover Magic, Jasper Community Foundation and private donations.
