Enrichment Clubs are sponsored by the PTA and are run by parent and student volunteers.  More volunteers are always welcome so we can add more classes to include more students.  Without our amazing volunteers these classes would not be available to our students.   We will be offering classes in the Winter and Spring as well.  If you are interested in teaching a class please contact Karen Harding at realdreama@aol.com

Goals:

Keep students at Two Rivers engaged in classes throughout the year and allow them the opportunity to make new friends, learn a new skill, enhance their academics and stay healthy. They might just discover an interest that will become a lifetime passion.
