Only 2 more days to sign up for Sand Point Elementary’s Enrichment Program!
There are 26 spots available each for Grades K-2 and Grades 3-5. Because of this limitation we will be picking students through a lottery. Once your sign up is turned in no later than December 12, 2014, we will then randomly pick students. You will be notified if your student has been picked to participate in the program the week of December 15, 2014. If your student has not been picked for the first 6 week session, you will be put on a waitlist and have first priority for the next session.
The Enrichment Committee and Team are developing challenging and engaging learning opportunities for Sand Point students. Enrichment this year will be designed around the goal of providing students a lab environment where they will wrestle with real life problems to find solutions. In these math/science learning labs, students will research, design, and build solutions to problems introduced to the students by the learning lab coordinator. We will use the problems presented by the portable classrooms: an asphalt setting, poor ventilation, overheating, poor lighting, lack of running water, and limited space as the petri dish of our research and experimentation in environmental design and sustainability. Through research, design, and construction, students’ work will be a cornerstone of Sand Point’s eco-community and a permanent feature of Sand Point’s physical plant.
There will be six week intervals with a two week Interim time in between sessions. The Interim time will utilize the broad skills of our parent volunteer community and expand the interests here at Sand Point Elementary.
Classes are once a week starting at 8:15am, ending at 9:15am (transportation is not provided at this time)
Grades K-2 will start on Tuesday January 6, 2015
Grades 3-5 will start on Thursdays January 8, 2015
Location: The Library
