Enrichment and Outreach Services

Enrichment Programs
Money obtained through grants such as The Stewart's Holiday Match Grant, Jonathan Levin Grant, from the Southern Vermont Art Center, and the McCarty Grant make it possible for us to provide programs for the children including Hullabaloo with Alexander Langstaff throughout the winter months, puppetry with the No Strings Marionette Company, Jay Cook and his group Jazz berry Jam. Along with these programs some of the grant money is utilized toward purchasing new children's books, literacy, math, and science manipulative for the children and to help with staff development
