Fridays at Exploris Elementary = Explorations! This elective program is like none-other. Explorations invites Exploris K-5 students to choose from a variety of enrichment activities beyond their typical classroom lessons and projects. Students attend Explorations once per week for two hours. Students select new classes, called Modules, every six weeks. Modules may include a service component, a chance to learn a new skill, the opportunity to build on an interest, or a new insight about our community. In addition, Explorations is community-led. During the 2014-2015 school year Explorations had over 50 classes led by 100+ volunteers giving over a zillion volunteer hours. This program is not possible without the generous gift of time and energy from the talented volunteers in our community. We also run on a ZERO budget and rely on donations and thrifty planning by our teachers in order to keep the program FREE.
