Enrichment For All
A message from Dr. Hays
Enrichment For All is a new program available to all WGSD elementary students. This program will explore computer science and STEM through optional, pre-recorded lessons that will be shared through Canvas each week. First semester, lessons were directed towards grades 3-5 and are still available for students to complete. Second semester will be focused on grades K-2. For the younger grades, all of the words on the screen have a play button directly below them so the students do not need to read anything by themselves. All of the work by the students can be completed with minimal help from a parent or teacher. The first lesson will be published on Tuesday, January 19. Please feel free to reach out with any questions.
