Save the Date! Enrollment for Fall 2020 (Online) Enrichment Classes opens 9/22 @ 7 PM

Make sure to set a reminder for Tuesday, 9/22 at 7 PM to enroll for Fall enrichment classes via Homeroom, our online enrichment portal. We’ve got a great line up of virtual enrichment activities this session, with plenty of new classes, plus old favorites that are guaranteed to delight students (and give tired parents some extra time to get work done, or practice some much needed self care)! View the Class List here.

Enrollment runs from Tuesday, September 22nd at 7 PM through Friday, September 25th at 5 PM. Course offerings (including days/times, fees and class descriptions) are currently available to view on Homeroom.

Fall enrichment classes will start on September 28th and run through December 11, 2020 (with a make-up week scheduled from December 14-18, 2020).  Classes will start at 3:30 PM (2:15 on Wednesdays) and run between 45 – 90 minutes in duration. Note: some classes may have earlier/later start dates or times, so please check the class schedule carefully. Fall enrichment classes are open to students in grades 1-5 only.  Kindergarten students are welcome to enroll starting Winter session. More details are available on the Enrichment page.

By choosing to enroll in a class through the GH Enrichment Program, you will be supporting our dedicated vendors, many of who are local, small businesses. Plus, a portion of each tuition goes to the PTA’s scholarship fund to allow for all GH students to take enrichment classes, regardless of financial ability.

Enrichment Classes Going Online for Spring Session!

The following classes will be offered ONLINE so that students can continue to take virtual enrichment classes during the school closure:

  • Mondays: Little Coders K-2, Drawing & Painting Exploration 2 -5 (now open to 2nd graders!)
  • Tuesdays: Boom Dance Exploration K-3, Mandarin K-3, Chess 2-5 (new day for online classes only)

*Note: All classes will be offered “live” via Zoom, except Tae Kwon Do and Vocal Performance which will post weekly video lessons (with optional prompts and activities) for students to access at any time.

If your student is looking for fun and creative activities in the afternoon after a long day of homeschooling, I’d highly recommend giving one or more of these online classes a try.  In particular, Jump Rope and Drawing & Painting Exploration are both terrific classes, plus very good value! Not sure about if online classes are a good fit for your student? All classes have a satisfaction guarantee so your student take a trial class for free. There are still spots available for all online classes, so please contact the Enrichment Coordinator as soon as possible to enroll before the session starts on March 30th!
