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.

Please contact program coordinator, Christine Cedergren at ccedergren@smcatholicschools.org  with any questions, feedback, ideas or if you would like to be an instructor.

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 or sign up for after school care at the host school.
