Co-Curricular Enrichment Classes are an important hallmark of our school. The following Enrichment Classes are generally offered during the school year.
COMPUTER SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY
Kindergarten-8th grade students learn programming along with essential computer hardware, software and Internet services using the MIT-approved Creative Computing curriculum.
Kindergarten-8th grade students have 2-3 PE classes per week. Students learn and improve upon different physical skills while learning the rules and gameplay of many sports. We stress the importance of sportsmanship, teamwork, and having fun no matter the sport!
All students learn the phonetics, grammar and vocabulary of the Spanish language. They explore the culture, history and geography of Spanish-speaking countries. Students master simple phrases which they can use in everyday life. Middle school students graduate from 8th grade with high school Spanish credit.
Weekly library classes with our staff librarian help foster an interest in reading and research. Our 7,000+ volume collection is a great resource for student projects and recreational enjoyment. Students have the opportunity to check out books every week.
Religion and World Cultures studies are designed for students in grades 4-8. The 4th, 5th, and 6th graders creatively study the Hebrew and Greek Bible stories, values, and history. 7th and 8th graders examine the major world religions: Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism. Students will experience group activities, spontaneous acting, quizzes, games, hot seats (guest speakers), songs, symbols, creative praying, videos, research, public speaking, student-led chapels, and field trips shaping the students’ global values.
