  • Enrichment Projects:

    I will be meeting with your child for approximately 6 weeks to work on a research project of choice.  The choice in research will allow them to work on something that they are passionate about.  Studies have shown that this enhances productivity and fosters lifelong learning.
    Your child will create a culminating project to further enhance their learning.
    All enrichment projects will be worked on during our class time.
