Friday Enrichment

We are pleased to announce that enrichment is back for Fall 2021!  TK-2nd will be held at the Truckee Recreation Center.  3rd-5th will be via the Gateway Mountain Center.  6th-8th will be through our Service Learning Program, lead by Kathleen Ruffle.   For details and how to register, go to our PTO shop at, and click on “Enrichment.”

By having students sign up and pay for the session they plan to attend, we are able to schedule and pay teachers, budget for the year, and plan classes based on number of students attending.

We always need volunteers!  If you have a free Friday, or even a half -day, please contact the enrichment coordinator for your child’s program!
