Spring Enrichments

This will be the last Sign Up for Enrichments for the 2021-2022 School Year. All classes start after the start of Trimester Three so students will have received their final allotment of funds. We are so excited that our amazing French Teacher, Ms. Josee, returns this Spring to teach a combined class for new and returning students. This will be the only series of classes with multiple sessions this time, so students will NOT be able to sign up for additional classes that overlap.

Are they not at an independent reading level yet? No worries! Reading to them counts as well!

January and February Enrichments

Hello families!! I have heard you loud and clearly about the Sign Up being confusing for Enrichment Classes. We are reducing the amount of overlapping classes so students are not double booked and trying a new Sign Up look that should make it easier to see if a class is a single day or a series of multiple days. We are also trying out having age groups on different days, so please check your calendar to see if your kiddo is REALLY available on the days you select. If classes fill up, we will add more sessions of the same classes. Please email [email protected] with waiting list requests.
