A Preview of Possible Enrichment Activities for 2022-23
National Spelling Bee
3rd Grade through 5th Grade students will participate in an oral spelling bee held within the classroom.
Final Local Spelling Bee - Contra Costa County
- 4th/5th grade math tournament team led by parent volunteers.
Destination Imagination (Oct. to Mar.)
Team tournaments where students solve challenges based on three essential skills: Teamwork, Creativity, and Problem Solving. This program provides creative problem-solving opportunities for students of all ages and fosters original and divergent thinking by working in teams. Participants learn teamwork, the appreciation of understanding others, and that a group is a more powerful thinking force than an individual- Grades 3-5. In March the students present their solutions at a regional tournament. (Meetings are outside of school)

Gaming Club- Games, such as card, board, drawing, and more, are a perfect way to get kids to come together, have fun, be competitive, but also work on their social skills and problem-solving skills.
Students are more frequently not playing face-to-face with their peers and it is my hope that relationships can grow, confidence can be built, and fun and learning can be had through the Gaming Club.
