Come One, Come All to the Greatest Show on Earth!! This year’s Enrichment Day theme is “Under the Assumption Big Top.” Enrichment Day is one of the students’ favorite days of the year, where they are brought together to learn about diverse cultures and experiences through fun-filled interdisciplinary activities. The students travel throughout the school, experiencing the year’s theme from different perspectives and points of view. But we need your help! Parent volunteers are needed to help with the planning leading up to the day, and to run the activities on Enrichment Day which will take place on Friday, May 11th. Our first general meeting will be on Friday, January 26th at 8:15am in the MultiPurpose Room. Please join us to find out more about this exciting day and help brainstorm some circus-themed activities. Feel free to contact a member of the Enrichment Committee with any ideas or questions.
