Roy Cloud Winter 2019 Enrichment Schedule

All of the before and after school classes are on campus, but it is the responsibility of the parents to register their child with each individual vendor.  It is also the responsibility of the parents to make sure their child knows where and when after-school classes are happening. It is not the responsibility of the enrichment coordinators or the vendors to walk your child to class..  1-3 grade students will be asked to check in with the enrichment coordinator in the hallway between the st and 2nd grade classrooms as a safety step, and a parent volunteer will meet all registered kindergarteners in front of room #20 on Wednesdays and Thursdays for art and music. If your child attends Workshop Enrichment or Kid’s Corner, they should go there first and then be walked to classes by Kid’s Corner or a parent volunteer for Workshop Enrichment.

What makes this class exceptional is that we’ve bundled all of the creative aspects that your student loves about Minecraft and wrapped it with collaborative learning and problem solving.  Students love playing the game together – and coming up with strategies as a team to solve challenges.
