Winter Enrichment Classes are OPEN!

Our PTA is excited to be able to offer a diverse schedule of after school enrichment classes this winter! Classes begin the week of January 16th. Therefore, your child needs to be registered by Friday, January 13th. A parent square was sent to all families yesterday explaining how to registered and apply for a scholarship. These Enrichment classes provide our students with a great opportunity to participate in a variety of activities without leaving the school campus! A BIG Thank You to Adams parents, Sara and Steve Caputo, for coordinating this opportunity for our students!
