We have developed partnerships with several Community Based Organizations that will enrich our academic curriculum. Each enrichment program with which we have partnered provides a trained, lead teacher to work with our students. Classroom teachers will work with partnership teachers to aide with instruction and management. Our Enrichment partnerships, with highly esteemed community based organizations, provide our children opportunities to explore and acquire interests and knowledge that they may not otherwise obtain. These PTA supported programs provide a supportive environment for children to explore, create and gives voice and action to the inner being of a child
Recess Enhancement Program (REP)
REP transforms the culture of recess by engaging students and staff in a variety of cooperative games. The program creates a safe environment where children can have fun and be physically active while maintaining a sense of independence and ownership of the recess period. In addition to physical benefits, REP also helps children develop leadership and social skills by empowering them to lead and teach games to their peers. The end result is an educated community of students who utilize the entire recess period to play games they love that keep them physically active and safe on the playground.
