Abbotts Hill Elementary Schoolwide Enrichment Model Programs
We are proud to offer student centered learning opportunities. Our long term goals are: to improve student achievement at the highest levels, improve student's critical thinking skills and to increase student engagement in academics.
Students will experience enrichment opportunities at Abbotts Hill Elementary School in both the classroom and through a myriad of opportunities before, during, and after school. Our Student Enrichment Model (SEM) continues to grow and flourish providing students with opportunities to explore their interests.
Teaching students to be responsible, self-confident, and self-reliant, will continue to be a key emphasis of our school's vision. In addition, we are placing a greater emphasis on project based learning and service learning projects tied directly to the curriculum. We will accomplish this through our enrichment clusters. We will also celebrate our schoolwide community which is rich in cultural diversity through our "Where in the World is Jazzy Jan?" This program provides staff, parents and community members an opportunity to share their cultural experiences. Families may also choose to enhance student enrichment by participating in one or more of the after school clubs offered after school at Abbotts Hill. These programs are fee based and are provided by Fulton County approved vendors. This year these programs include, Chess, Dance, Yoga, Art, Robotics, Guitar and Keyboarding/Piano.
We believe that our parents, business partners, and community members are our partners and play an important role in the Abbotts Hill Elementary School learning community. Parents and business partners are welcome and are encouraged to participate in our many enrichment programs as the talents, experiences, and expertise of our wonderful community are vital to our program. New this school year is our Lunch and Learn Enrichment Sessions! This program will provide a great opportunity for our students to be exposed to various college possibilities and career opportunities. We also invite our parents to attend the All Pro Dad and Parent University Events.
For individuals interested in contributing to our Schoolwide Enrichment Model (SEM) a list of dates, times and contact information will be on our website.
