About Local Enrichment Opportunities

The programs below represent local enrichment opportunities for students. Though many of these programs have come to our attention through recommendations of students and parents of the Glendale-River Hills School District, the district bears no responsibility nor guarantees for the quality of outside programming.

If you would like to recommend a local opportunity not listed here, please email the name and nature of the program, targeted student age, dates offered, and contact information (phone, email and/or web address) to Patti Walters, Curriculum Secretary, at patti.walters@glendale.k12.wi.us
