Manners, Maker & Games

Fall 2021 Enrichment Classes begin the week of August 30!

Register now!

Enrichment Classes are a great way to turbo-charge your child's after school hours. Classes meet approximately 15 weeks, depending on the day of the class. Many programs fill up fast. Don't miss out!

Please note that these classes will be blending cohorts and grades, increasing the risk of exposure and possible quarantine if we have a positive COVID diagnosis. Masks and school day safety protocols will still be observed. 

We are continuing our two-tier pricing system. There is a higher charge for students who are not enrolled in After School Care. This additional charge will give your student access to after school care on the day of their class until it closes: 5:45 p.m. on the South Campus and 6:00 p.m. on the North Campus.

The fine print: Class info is subject to change. Classes do not meet on days that school is not in session, and will not be made up. Classes are not guaranteed to meet all weeks.
