“The last Friday of each month, our PTA sponsors a ‘Fabulous Friday.’ Students attend an elective class of their choice for the last hour of that day. By the end of the year, students will have attended their enrichment class 6 times, or for 6 hours. Some of the 20 different class choices are Greek mythology, knitting, investment club, and German. Class offerings are based on the talents and interests of the teachers and volunteers who lead the program. Not only are kids being exposed to new and exciting topics, but they are learning about making thoughtful choices and sticking by them.”
