WHAT IS ENRICHMENT?
The MCCPS Enrichment Program is a daily 45-minute period in which parents, community volunteers, and staff work with students on a wide variety of projects and activities. The Enrichment program began in the school’s first year as a means for parents to take an active role in the learning environment of their children and for students to learn from their extended local community. Since then, it has grown to become an integral component of the school’s core commitment to community partnerships. The Enrichment program creates opportunities that connect the school with local community members. In addition to the learning gained from working on projects and participating in activities, students learn about themselves, enhance their skills and talents, and meet and work cooperatively with other members of their community. Parents and other community members have an opportunity to enhance the learning of the children. Community partnerships help create and maintain a healthy school community, enhance the engagement of the students, and provide examples of real life applicability for the skills and habits learned throughout the school year. Anyone with a desire to share what he or she knows with students is invited to join us.
