Cultural Arts Enrichment Program “A Trip Around the World!” (Elementary students only)
(Monday – Thursday, 3:00 – 4:30 pm)
The goal of our cultural enrichment program is to expose and educate students to the cultures of our community and world. It is our belief that given the opportunity, children can learn tolerance and compassion for all people. It’s important that a child learn about their place in the world, both geographically and culturally.
- The Cultural Arts Enrichment Program at Spruce Tree offers cultural exposure through music, dance, crafts, and cuisine as a part of the regular school day and as an extension to the school day during an active, one hour after-school period.
- The program begins the Monday after the first day of school each September.
- Culture class begins at 3:00 pm each day and includes literature and music from around the world. The after-school portion (3:30 – 4:30 pm) offers a more in-depth, inquiry-based study of art, music, dance and cuisine from specific countries.
- The fee for this after-school program is $1,350 annually or $225 per academic session.
Sunrise / Sunset Extended Day Programs
Our extended day programs are offered to all ages for an additional $675 per school year or $120 per academic session.
For the early birds, our Sunrise Program offers parents an early drop off period during which students may eat breakfast, read/draw or begin their schoolwork. Monday – Friday, 7:30 am – 8:15 am*.
As the day comes to a close, children are encouraged to draw, write, color, read, do puzzles or play logic games during our Sunset Program, a late day option, Monday – Thursday, 4:30 – 5:45 pm*. Please note that there is no Sunset Program on Fridays. We reserve Friday afternoons for staff reflection, meeting time and material preparation.
*Drop-off / pick-up anytime during these periods is acceptable; programs are non-academic, “free time” options supervised by our trained staff and offered as a convenience for parents.
