Education extends far beyond the subjects of math, language arts, history and science. Within Hueneme Elementary School District, there are numerous clubs and enrichment programs that inspire students to learn beyond the textbook. These enrichment programs encourage friendship, team building and skill strengthening. All programs take place after school as extra-curricular activities and are offered at each school throughout HESD.
These programs have been created to do just that– to enrich the learning lives of each student who participates, both educationally and developmentally. Outside of their “extracurricular” genre, enrichment programs across the country have been shown to directly improve reading and math skills once students return to the classroom.
More than that, continued participation in enrichment groups has been proven to lower school dropout rates, reduce social challenges and prepare students for higher education.
And what better way to discover new interests, develop work ethic and increase a desire to learn? All of this and more is available at your student’s disposal when they sign up for an after-school enrichment program.
Who Can Sign Up?
• Students who like a challenge
• Students who are striving to reach their full potential
• Students who want to discover new interests
• Students who simply like to have fun
In short, anyone and everyone can sign up!
