On June 20, second graders from Harley Avenue showcased what they’ve
learned over the past six weeks in the 2nd Gear program—in-school
enrichment that aids students in learning to express themselves through
different areas of interest.
“Research shows that enrichment clubs help develop the whole child, so
allowing children to be challenged and think critically outside of the
regular school subjects during the school day is very valuable,” said
Principal Elissa Milan.
Students had the opportunity to choose one area of interest from variety
of options, including the Debate Team, Chromebook Coding Creators, the
Debate Team, and Act it Out earlier in the year. Each group was then led
by a Harley Avenue educator that volunteered their knowledge of a
specific area of expertise.
During the 2nd Gear Fair, each group demonstrated what they learned for
their peers. The afternoon was filled with applause and cheers as
students proudly showed off their new skills, excited to pursue new
hobbies both in and out of school.
