Thank you to all who made enrichment’s Creativity Week such a wonderful time! The entire school enjoyed a week full of activities thanks to our parents and their generous donations to our PTA. All week, we had many amazing speakers, created wondrous miniature gardens, and learned about topics we may not normally study in the classroom! Thank you to all those who helped, including our wonderful PTA who provided lunches for our speakers.
