Enrollment at Micheltorena has continued to grow over the past few years and the needs of our parents and students are continually changing. To address these changing needs we are looking at adding to the on campus options for after school care. Moreover FOM will be discontinuing the after school enrichment program that we have been offering for the past three and a half years. After careful consideration we determined that both our money and time could be better spent on other benefits for the school. To fill both these gaps, we would like to add Enrichment Educational Experiences (E3) to support both a need for more on campus after school care and to support optional after school enrichment classes for our students.
Adding E3 to our Micheltorena community will allow us to offer both:
- after school enrichment class at a low price
- a paid option for after school care with flexible enrollment options in terms of number of days per week and pick up time
In order to add these options by February 2017, we need to have at least 20 parents interested in the new offering by end of November. Please let us know if you are interested by signing up at the link below. While this is not a commitment to enroll, please only sign up if you are seriously considering it:
E3 AFTER SCHOOL ENRICHMENT PROGRAM COMPONENTS
Our E3 After School Program is comprised of 3 components designed to provide students the opportunity to participate in our “Signature” E3 Theme Classes, Study Hall/ “Think Tank” and “It’s a Wrap”. A positive philosophy of character building is integrated into each of the components. Our program can be custom designed to fit the needs of each individual school we serve.
E3 Theme Signature Classes
The E3 After School Program Theme Class is comprised of themes with an emphasis in art, music, dance, science and physical education. Our program introduces students to the great artists and also provides a life-long appreciation toward music and the great composers. The students develop an enthusiasm toward the discovery of science and are also exposed to various cultures through the study of geography.
Parents not needing full time care may enroll their children for the “class only”* option, taking these specialized classes 1-5 times per week for one hour a day.
Study Hall / “Think Tank”
This hour is likened to a library time where the classroom setting is quiet and the student can get a head start on the day’s homework. Our staff is available to assist with homework, check what has been completed and let parents know through a “Homework Alert” where the student might require further help at home.
“It’s a Wrap!”
An hour that provides opportunities to finish homework and/or enrichment projects and participate in supervised indoor/outdoor activities.
