Enrichment classes for the 4’s and pre-k begin on the first day of school and enrichment classes for the 3’s begins the second week of school.

Sign-up sheets for the Enrichment classes are on the bulletin board in the hall by Mrs. Potts’ 3-year-old class. Classes are limited in size and children should be signed up a day in advance for material purchases. A class may be cancelled if there are not four children signed up for a class.

Children do not need to sign up for consecutive classes. Most lessons and projects are completed in one class. If there is a particular project that goes on for two weeks, it will be posted on the Enrichment bulletin board.

Enrichment classes cost $18, which includes the 1 hour (1-½ hours for Kids in Motion) of Lunch Bunch. Your child can stay for an additional hour of Lunch Bunch until 3PM. The additional charge is $2 for that last hour. If you utilize two enrichment classes in one week, the cost is $32. If you utilize three enrichment classes in the same week, the cost is $46. Payment must be in your child’s lunch box. Morning Enrichment children should bring their lunch boxes with them back to the meeting area behind Lunch Bunch.
