Enrichments – Before School

Before School Enrichments – Monday through Thursday from 8:15 – 9:00am

McAuliffe is pleased to be offering a number of before school enrichments from 8:15-9:00am Monday through Thursday. All enrichments are free of charge but parents/guardians MUST sign up their student prior to a student attending a class.  Attendance will not be taken in enrichments but enrollment is still required so that we may plan for appropriate staffing, space, and supplies. Students may choose to attend an enrichment every day they are offered (Monday – Thursday) or just sign-up for a specific day or class. Enrichment offerings will change every trimester. All students signed up for an enrichment will enter through the main doors on Holly St.
