2023-2024 Enrichment Activities

Each year, McKinley-Thatcher partners with the DPS Department of Extended Learning & Community Schools (ELCS) to offer fall, winter, and spring sessions of after-school enrichment classes. These enrichment classes are offered by outside providers who come to our school building. Families may register their children for one or more of our enrichment classes. Each enrichment has an associated cost and runs one day a week after school for several months.
