SMCS Enrichment Program
Purpose and Mission
Our exciting enrichment program boasts a wide variety of opportunities
that cultivate an environment in which young people flourish:
one that challenges their minds, expands their social awareness,
reinforces their moral growth and promotes an active life style.
The mission of the SMCS Enrichment Program is to offer lower cost alternatives to our students,
build community among our SMCS elementary students,
help families enjoy more time together at night and
expose our kids to STEM and other programs that they may not otherwise get a chance to try.

The SMCS Enrichment Program offers classes in two sessions during the school year for preschool, elementary and middle school students, with sessions starting near the beginning of each semester. Choose your child’s activities by referring to the class descriptions for students in preschool, elementary and middle school, and then plan your schedule using the schedule specific to each session.
In the autumn, the SMCS Enrichment Program holds an enrichment recital at the Jane Bergstrom Fine Arts Education Center (FAEC) featuring presentations such as ballet/jazz and hip hop groups.
In the spring of each year, the SMCS Enrichment Program hosts the spectacular SMCS Enrichment Showcase in the Jane Bergstrom Fine Arts Education Center. This occasion is an opportunity for students to share the skills and talents they have developed through the year’s enrichment classes. The showcase usually includes onstage performances of music, dance and skills including a variety of dance styles, karate and vocal and instrumental pieces. A number of visual displays and demonstrations are also usually highlighted as well.

Late Pick Up
The instructor will inform the parents about where the children will be dismissed. Parents/guardians are welcome to drive up to pick up their child. If the responsible party is more than 10 minutes late to pick up, the student will be transferred to the host school’s after school-care program where regular hourly rates apply.
In case of an emergency, please text or call 920-572-2038.
If your child is dismissed from the class due to behavioral issues, a refund will not be issued.
Supervision of Children after Dismissal Until Class Time
Parents are responsible for their children from the time of dismissal until classes begin. Parents may pick up their children and bring them to class at the start time, sign up for after school care at the host school or organize a volunteer supervision co-op. In some cases, the teacher meets students at the dismissal location and leads them to class. Parents are responsible for checking to see if that is the case for the classes in which their children are enrolled.
