What an exciting opportunity for our students to spend 6 weeks “enriching” their minds! Parents enjoy the convenience of classes being held immediately after school, and the program is also easily utilized by our students signed-up for Clayton after school care. Enrichment offers students the ability to participate in extracurricular activities without the burden of a long term time commitment.
