2017-18 Session 1 Enrichment Program
This year we expanded our enrichment program to provide
more in-depth experiences outside the classroom. We expect
ALL students to participate in our enrichment program. A
student will sign up for one program each session and remain
with the same teacher and group of students for 4-6 dates
doing related activities.
The cost is for the entire session and will be paid at the time of
sign up. Unfortunately, refunds for missed days are not
possible.
Please look through this booklet to see the seven choices
available for session 1. Sign up online at
www.stonecreekschool.org/store. Space is limited in each
program, so be sure to sign up right away. If your top choice is
filled, you will have to pick another program. If you are unable
to pay online, contact Carrie Kirkutis at
office@stonecreekschool.org. You can pay her with cash or
check and she will help you sign up online. Please do not give
money to teachers or other admin, Carrie is the person who will
use the school credit card to sign your child up online. Sign up
deadline is Wednesday, Aug. 23. All teachers will be running
enrichment programs, so there will be no classes taught during
enrichment days. All students must sign up for a program. For
any planned absences, please fill out Student Absence Form.

Leadville: A history of mining
With Ms. Harrison
Cost: $16 with your own bike and
helmet; $33 with bike and helmet
rental
It gets cold here in the winter. Like really cold. Pioneers, the
men and women of the frontier, moved to our region before the
days of central heating, down jackets, and text messages.
They endured the harsh winters and navigated the unforgiving
terrain in their pursuit of riches and dreams. What brought
them out here? Where did they come from? Was the reward
worth the danger?
Come explore what life was like for these early settlers and
miners as we venture through what was one of the most
bustling and dangerous towns in the Wild West: Leadville.
During this enrichment you will go on an epic(but casual) bike
ride, visit old townsites, a hall of fame, mining ruins, and even
get a chance to venture below the surface of the earth into an
old mineshaft!
You will need your own bike and helmet for Sept. 8; you can
add on a bike rental when you sign up.
