Enrichment Class Schedule - enrichment class is an opportunity for a student to experience a challeng lesson.  The topics vary from cleaning up an oil spill to redesigning McDonald's Chicken McNugget shapes and writing a "pitch" to the McDonald's corporation.  These lessons are meant to provide a challenge to your child in a setting outside of his/her normal classroom.  Each grade level teacher may select 3 to 4 students that would benefit from the challenge lesson.  The selected students may change each month with each lesson as well.
Grades k-4 - Once per month during class intervention time
