It is the tradition of the Parent Advisory Council to sponsor the school’s Cultural Enrichment Program. A significant portion of the funds raised by the PAC is dedicated to this important endeavor.

Once a month, our children will be exposed to meaning- ful and enriching cultural programs through a variety of performances in the areas of music, art, storytelling, dance, drama, history, science & nature, and much more. Our Cultural Enrichment Programs enhance the educational experience, exposing our children to other cultures and helping them to be more tolerant and open to learn- ing more about other cultures. They will also learn to ex- press themselves creatively, improve their self confidence, and promote further engagement in school.

This year we have again made an effort to provide each grade with an opportunity to experience a grade-specific, curriculum-related enrichment program in addition to the monthly programs. Presentations to a smaller number of children gives each child better access to the performer or presenter for questions and discussions.
