Friday Enrichment (FE) is shifting focus for the 2019-20 school year as Sarah Reedy is unable to return to lead the program. We will break the year down to 3 segments: Fall, Winter, Spring. 

Program description for the fall: 

  • Begins Friday, September 27th  
  • Grades 4-8
  • Will focus on the geography and culture of one region/country
    for the fall.

  • Will include music, crafts, regional foods & cooking, maps, and other activities that come from the selected region.
  • We will transport to the Berkshire Outdoor Center once monthly in October and November for team-building and supplemental activities. 
  • There will be 1 field trip this fall, with one or two more later
    in the school year.

  • FE does not meet on any Friday that precedes a Monday vacation day, nor on half-day school release.

If you would like to apply for either program, or have questions, please call 413-623-5483 to speak with Jodi.
