Enrichment program at Bishop Hayes expands learning opportunities

Students work with dominoes during math class.

This year at Bishop Hayes Catholic School brought a new enrichment program. The program consists of Spanish and library skills classes for kindergarten to fifth grade and grade-level enrichment activities.

The enrichment activities include: Invention Convention (third grade), Literature Festival (third to fifth grades), science camp (third to fourth grades), and ECO Meet (fifth grade).

Kindergarteners through second-graders participate in Domino Math the Forces of Flight, History of Money, and the Discover Program. The classes and activities are taught on a rotating basis every Friday.

Also this year, the school was very fortunate to have a visitor to the enrichment classes. Miriam Laizer, a foreign exchange student from Tanzania, Africa, is staying with one of the Bishop Hayes families.


She spoke with each grade on her life and culture. She talked with students about the “Water for Africa” program, which educates African people on water purification and builds water systems where needed.
