Fall Enrichment

Welcome!  With the 2022 Fall Enrichment Class offerings, you will find a mix of science, art, social, and movement enrichment opportunities for your student. All fall classes are taught by MPA teachers and faculty. Our goal is to encourage and nurture your child's learning, while having fun in the process.

Registration is due prior to the start of class. Cancellations will be honored up to 3 business days prior to start of class. There are no refunds after class has begun. An email class confirmation will be emailed home. You will also be notified if a class is cancelled due to low enrollment.

We look forward to a fun and engaging fall enrichment session. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Sincerely,
