Curriculum Enrichment Spotlight

On Monday, January 10th, the 4th graders were visited by Michael from Top Secret Science and enjoyed The Good Earth program. They were introduced to crystals, rocks and minerals and got to create their own blue crystals, play with magical sand and talk about the properties of magnets while playing some games. The kids all had a great time! 
As a reminder, every child in every grade benefits from funds raised by the PTO, and a large percentage of our funds go to support curriculum enrichment programming throughout all grade levels.
This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

Curriculum enrichment or “CE,” are the programs that are brought in to the classroom to enrich a subject area in an exciting multi-modal way of learning. We have a great team of parent volunteers who coordinate these programs. The coordinators work with teacher liaisons from each grade to determine programs that will complement the respective curriculums.
