Academic & Curriculum Enrichment - Why?

Based on feedback from parents, we know you may be wondering why we need the enrichment programs that CCLF funds. These programs were added to our curriculum in the best interest of our students because research has consistently proven their benefits at the elementary school level, including the following:

  • Classroom aides (para educators) help students reach the highest level of achievement by pulling small groups of students out of the classroom and providing targeted instructional services thereby allowing teachers to work with smaller groups in their classroom.
  • Art and music instruction contribute to a child’s cognitive, social, and emotional development.
  • STEAM learning has been shown to promote problem solving, and creative and analytical thinking.
  • Library time helps improve a child’s vocabulary and language skills while also developing their imagination, empathy, concentration, and knowledge of the world around them.

Meet Our Paraprofessionals

Parent donations to CCLF provide our students with the benefit of para educators (who help reduce teacher-to-student ratio by providing instructional support in both math and reading across all grade and achievement level), librarian hours, technology instruction, music instruction, reading specialists, and STEM activities.

These programs are only possible because of YOUR donations to CCLF.
