Classroom Enrichment

Saint John School Classroom Enrichment


The Classroom Enrichment Team enhances our students’ education with in-school programs and field trips. Teachers and parents work together to identify opportunities to complement classroom curricula at every grade level. Enrichment programs have included bringing in authors, nature and science educators, and supporting trips to local historical sites, as well as visits to science, history and art museums and the theatre.  

Our students enjoy learning from many of the rich educational resources available in our area. They have opportunities to witness where history happened and participate in many hands-on activities. Recently they have learned about nocturnal animal behavior from Drumlin Farm naturalists, role-played historical figures at the Concord Museum, and applied scientific method while engineering efficient water mills in Lowell at the Tsongas Industrial History Center.
