Enrichment

Immaculate Conception’s Enrichment program is a 30-45 minute class held twice a week during school hours assisting students who need additional opportunities to practice reading, phonics, and math. Enrichment is a wonderful opportunity for the students to have one-on-one, small group instruction and hands-on practice to reinforce the classroom skills. The program's goal is to help each student meet their individual educational goals as well as their social, physical, emotional, and spiritual growth.

IC's Enrichment program uses numerous techniques to promote learning for students K-6th grade. Teaching methods can include individualized instruction, problem-solving assignments, and small-group work. Students are provided with an individualized goal plan based on our STAR Reading, STAR Math assessments, class performance, standardized test scores and teacher recommendations. Each student’s academic team (Enrichment teacher, classroom teachers, private therapists {when necessary} and the student's family) monitors needs and progress throughout the year to achieve academic goals. 

IC's Enrichment Program is lead by Carol Hardin, who has been a teacher at Immaculate Conception for seventeen years. She graduated from University of Arkansas Little Rock with a BS in Psychology and a Minor in Health Science. Recently, she completed training in the DuBard Association Method through the University of Southern Mississippi.  The DuBard Association Method is a phonetic, multisensory teaching-learning strategy that is Orton-Gillingham based in content and principles of instruction. It is designed for children with language deficiencies such as Language Learning Disabilities/Dyslexia, Attention Deficit Disorders, and English as a Second Language (ESL).
