Academic Enrichment

Teachers have many resources they will use to provide academic enrichment daily. The morning academic enrichment will come through themed activities that are multi-sensory and subject focused.  Afternoon academic times will based on “skill and drill folders” -doing daily refreshers to check on grade level benchmarks. These activities will be used to help bridge the gap to upcoming grade levels. Work will be sent home and any feedback on skill mastery or understanding will be communicated to parents so that we are helping address any gaps that students may have due to lack of hands on instruction during the final quarter due to COVID-19 school closures.
