Enrichment Activities

Check out our Enrichment Classes for the 2nd Trimester.  Our goal is to provide interesting and educational classes for all the students.  For the second trimester, there will be a limit of students per class.  This limit to make sure that the teacher will have the ability to work individually with each student.  If a class appears to be overfilled, we will be implementing an application process for the class.  We want to make sure all students are in the class because they are ready and excited to learn about the taught concept.

 

We will be giving the option of having students be graded in each class.  If they pick this option, the class will be added to their end of the year report card.

 

We are also trying to incorporate more project-based learning into the enrichment classes, to make sure this is successful, we need the students to stay enrolled in the class the entire trimester.

 

If a student is not enrolled in an afterschool enrichment class, they need to be picked up at 12:00 after the academic hours.  If a child is staying afterschool and is not in a class there will be a $10 fee charged to the family per day.

 

All students in 1st and 2nd graders are welcome to stay afterschool and be part of the Afterschool Learning Program with Laura.  There will be a $40 fee for the trimester, this is to purchase additional materials for the class.

 

Trimester 2 Enrichments Classes will start January 15th.
