The Enrichment Challenge

The enrichment challenge is a scorecard packed with excellent ideas for students to expand their learning horizons! Students are encouraged by the challenge to get outside, to visit new places, to help others, to learn a new skill, and much more. Each student in the school received a copy of the scorecard.

The enrichment challenge was created in response to many parent questions about how they might enrich student learning at home. This scorecard gives concrete ideas for individual and family activities. Students are also excited to find that they are already doing some of these things in their extracurricular activities, and so it is a way to celebrate these efforts too!

This year the enrichment challenge will run from now until the end of May. Participation in the challenge is for fun, and is an optional, at home activity! All students who participate in the challenge will receive a certificate at the end of the year and a small reward, but as we discussed in class --the real reward is looking at your completed scorecard and seeing all of the great things you have accomplished.

I hope all students will TAKE the CHALLENGE!!
