ENRICHMENT OPPORTUNITIES AVAILABLE

Hello FRMS Families,

I hope you are doing well and are adjusting to this year’s Hybrid Model of learning. These opening weeks of school certainly took an adjustment period for each of us, and it is time to share with you some of the Enrichments will be offered this year. You will recognize a lot of our traditional offerings are still here, but you may also recognize some offerings are not due to limitations we face with our current structure and safety regulations. Most of the offerings are virtual at this time, so all learners can access them in a safe environment. As the year progresses, we will adjust the offerings and how they are delivered if we can. I am pleased to share the following three links with you, and I hope these provide rich and meaningful possibilities for your families to consider.

1. Virtual Field Trips for Young Authors, STEMLink, and The Creatives

3. Schoology Group Codes for FRMS Enrichment Opportunities

I am providing a link that will be updated in the next few weeks as teachers are creating some enrichment groups. Many of these groups will not start right away, but I wanted to provide the link to a document that has all kinds of enrichment opportunities for you to have as a reference. Please check back every few weeks.

4. In addition to these opportunities, please encourage your student to participate in the enrichments offered by their content teachers. Many teachers are working hard this year to build in activities/opportunities to expand the rigor of their course. Schoology folders should contain these offerings.
