Winter Break Enrichment Activites for Students

To keep our students active over the break, the District has worked with partners to provide exciting educational challenges and opportunities for our K-12 students. Challenges range from iReady Math and Reading to high school writing challenges to earn cash prizes. For more information, click here.

In addition, over mid-winter break, have your student participate in K-12 S.T.E.A.M (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) enrichment virtual field trips and activities to stay engaged. These activities include educational and fun activities that incorporate math, science, art, and design. See below.
