E-Days

While all Perimeter School students enjoy many Enrichment Days throughout the academic year, every Friday for our first and second graders is an E-Day. 

E-Day is short for "first and second grade Enrichment Days on Fridays, led by parents."  While the students are taught by their classroom teacher Monday through Thursday, E-Day provides our parents, on a rotating basis, the opportunity to teach the topic of the day to their child's class.  Parents get a chance to share their passions with their child's classmates and get to know his or her friends.  Importantly, parents develop relationships with other covenant parents, who are either team-teaching or assisting for the day.  This precious time enables parents to carry out the promise to assist each other in the development of other Perimeter School students.  Parents of our first and second graders at Perimeter School all work hard to make our E-Days educational - and always fun!
