Enrichment

Curriculum enrichment is easily one of the most memorable and important contributions that our PTO makes to Summer Street School students. Each year, we bring in over a dozen programs that help reinforce and integrate the students’ learning.

Members of this year’s enrichment committee are Heatha Schena, Gia Leach, and Kim Adamo.   They have put together some great upcoming programs!  Though always a work-in-progress, currently scheduled for the 2012-2013 school year are the following programs:
