Enrichment and G.R.A.S.P.

The St. Patrick Enrichment Program is designed to meet the needs of students in the 2nd and 3rd grades. The program consists of specifically designed, challenging activities in the areas of reading, language arts, math, science, and religion. This school year, all 2nd graders will attend Enrichment in the STREAM Lab once a month.

3rd-grade students, who qualify for the program, will meet once a week. The qualifications for 3rd-grade Enrichment are ITBS scores, STAR results, and grades. G.R.A.S.P. is designed for academically talented students in the 4th-8th grades, who have met the criteria based upon the aforementioned qualifications.

G.R.A.S.P. offers a curriculum which will expand learning experiences in the area of cognitive thinking, creative expression, and research. Students will work on activities that develop higher level thought process, such as analyzing, creating, and evaluating.
