Extended Learning Opportunities

Being an Extended Learning School gives GBMS the ability to partner with a number of individuals, businesses and organizations along with teachers to offer enrichment classes to students. These enrichments give students a chance to try something new, explore new interests or expand on what they have learned in school and apply it in a different way. If you have questions about Extended Learning classes or would like to partner with GBMS on a class, please contact Tracy Brummett at tracy_brummett@dpsk12.org.

Students choose two enrichments each quarter and participate in one enrichment on Mondays and Wednesdays and the other on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Enrichments vary from year to year.
