Enrichment Programs

The majority of our PTO budget is spent on enrichment programs including field trips, in-school classroom programs and all school presentations that enhance the children’s curriculum and cultural experiences.   Grades 1-5 go on at least one field trip per year and every grade is provided with many wonderful in-school curriculum-related programs as well as all-school activities

An enrichment calendar is available during the year. Unless specifically stated, enrichment programs are for students and staff only.
