Enrichments

McAuliffe works with trusted partner organizations in running After School Enrichments during the fall, winter and spring. Enrichment classes run one day per week and take place after school, usually starting right after school and ending by about 5:30pm.

Parents need to contact the organization directly to register and pay for the enrichment. Classes with insufficient registrations may be cancelled, and there is a maximum number of students each class can accommodate. For questions about this program or for information about scholarships, please contact Sherry Beardshear at sherry_beardshear@dpsk12.org.

Fashion Design/Sewing Class

Let your inner designer shine! Students will begin with hand sewing and move on to using machines as their skills progress. I will work with students collectively and individually as they move at their own pace. Students will have the opportunity to choose their own projects developing self-confidence as they go, will challenge themselves learning how to use commercial patterns and are encouraged to “upcycle” clothes they bring from home. Continuing students will be challenged with new skills and projects. Lots of fun and creativity! All materials are provided.
