Enrichment Workshops will occur from the month of September to April, Tuesday through Thursday of each week dependent upon scheduling of presenters. The designated time for SELF is 3:3opm-5:15pm. In most cases, schedules will be presented at least one to two weeks prior to the actual workshop. Schedule can change without prior notice. However, the staff will ensure that students and/or parents are notified within 24 hours of cancellation if permissible. For the presenter to accurately prepare, students must sign up for a workshop at least (3) three school days prior to the workshop. For example, if a scholar wishes to attend a workshop scheduled for a Thursday, he/she must sign up no later than the Monday prior to the date. Some workshops will be parent/community friendly and will offer useful information, for example, "Why should I vote?"
