UHSG Enrichment Day Classes Now In Session

By W.L. Age 12

Homeschoolers in the local Kaiserslautern area started Enrichment Day on September 7. Enrichment Day is a weekly event where children participate in classes of many different subjects some of which their parents may not have the resources to teach at home. In the fall session, homeschoolers meet from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM on Tuesdays, from September through November. There are 11 different classes offered during this first session of  Enrichment Day: LEGO Challenge, Beginning ASL, Geography Co-op: Around the World, Young Scientists Co-op, Sewing Basics, Learning with Board Games, Writing Workshop, Critical Thinking in Reading and Writing, U.S Government, Speech and Communications, and Personal Finance. There are several benefits provided to families who participate at Enrichment Day. Highschoolers can earn credits in some of the high school classes. All homeschoolers have the opportunity to not only learn new things but make friends too. All families should consider their family schedules before deciding to participate. The second session for Enrichment Day will begin at the end of January. Anyone looking to submit a class can fill out a class submission form.
