Extended Learning Time Partner: Peaceful Schools
Peaceful Schools Enrichment Program
The Peaceful Schools Enrichment Program supports students’ growth in the core social skills of Cooperation, Assertion, Responsibility, Empathy, and Self-Control (C.A.R.E.S.). Led by our team of dedicated enrichment instructors, students will engage in fun, hands-on, project-based learning in science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (S.T.E.A.M.).
The Peaceful Schools Enrichment Program aims to help students develop social competence, reduce incidences of youth violence, and establish value in and connection to their community. Peaceful Schools is committed to giving everyone the power to be peaceful.
This year at Dr. King, students in grades K-2 will develop and practice social skills through a multi-disciplinary exploration of visual arts, music, dance, fitness, and S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). Students in grades 3-5 are given the opportunity to select from enrichment course offerings including: Science and Engineering, Visual Arts, Health and Fitness, and Building Men, offered in partnership with the Building Men Program.
