The Foundation is excited to share with you the 2023 Winter Enrichment offerings!

This winter, we are offering 7 weeks, all of which are run by our own EFS faculty members and new outside vendors. We continue to offer online payments through MobileArq.

Classes will begin immediately after school, from 3:05 - 4:25 p.m. All classes are held on school premises. All enrichment classes will follow the current EFS COVID protocols. Please remember to send your child in with a snack. If your child attends after-care, they will be taken after their enrichment class to Tiny
Treasures, where they can commence after-care from 4:25 p.m. If children are picked up late (after 4:35 p.m.), a late charge of $10 per child is applied.
Please note: Children must only be signed up for classes offered for their specific grade.
