Our middle school enrichment is an experiential learning program themed on outdoor adventure, environmental stewardship and local community service. We offer field trips and activities such as rock climbing, kayaking, mountain biking, yoga, as well as instruction in 3D arts, laboratory and natural science. We have offered focused hands on classes that have covered a range of topics and activities such as Hip Hop Dance, Wilderness First Aid and French Cooking! Each semester's offerings vary depending on availability of programming....

What does your enrichment fee cover? Your enrichment fees go directly to pay activity expenses. Although we rely heavily on parent and community volunteers in order to keep costs down, our expenses do include equipment and facility rentals, professional services, instructor and activity fees.
For Spring 2018 only, we are offering the option to pay only for the activities you sign up for. We are partnering with more local companies (adventure and outdoor activity providers) to ensure a more professional and reliable experience. Hiring professional guides and companies may increase the per-day cost significantly, but you only have to pay for the activities you plan to attend. All of our vendors are offering us significant discounts to their normal costs to the public. And, if the activity is cancelled due to weather or provider emergency, you will be refunded for that event.
If you want your child to attend one or more of these enrichment activities but cannot afford the cost of the class or program, please contact Creekside PTO President Melissa Panico to request a scholarship. A portion of our PTO funds is always used to subsidize PTO sponsored activities for families in need and no child will be turned away due to financial hardship. We do also offer trades for those who volunteer to lead or chaperone our activities.
