WINTER ENRICHMENT SUCCESS!

 

What an amazing season of Winter Enrichment! This year we offered 19 classes and sold 187 seats. Many of our students are sad that these fun-filled, educational classes came to an end, as such a fun time was had by all!

 
 
In an effort to continue to improve this program we ask that parents of students who registered for Winter Enrichment classes complete a short survey.
 
 
 
Makeup Classes:
As a result of half-day Mondays and some schedule conflicts during the season, some classes are offering a makeup session. Below is a list of classes that will offer makeup class(es): 
 

Class Name Day of the Week Makeup Date(s)
Art Exploration: K-2 Monday 2/24 and 3/2
