Enrichment Classes

Laurel Heights Weekday School offers numerous opportunities for enrichment for your child each week. Four enrichment classes are integrated into the curriculum and will become part of your child’s education. Toddlers through pre-kindergarteners will receive all four enrichment classes including, Chapel, Motor Skills, Spanish, and Music. Infants will receive Music and Spanish classes.

Chapel is a time available for children in Groups 3-5. Weekly chapel celebrations are held in the Godly Play Chapel in the sanctuary. Each week the children are exposed to the repetitive format of songs and liturgy. This is a special time where children learn to be reflective and find comfort in time set apart to be with God. Chapel is a time where each child is able to celebrate his or her own uniqueness as a purposeful creation of God and to know God’s love.

    I am Virginia McMunn and I am from San Antonio. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Southwestern University. I have been at Laurel Heights for more than 5 years and I also a member of TMEA (Texas Music Educators Association).

    I am the music teacher for all 9 classes, so I teach the infants through 5 year olds. Since I have the opportunity to work with all the children at Laurel Heights, I feel blessed and lucky to have such variety. I love presenting the same topics in ways that are developmentally appropriate for each age group.

    I am married and have 2 redheaded boys. I work part-time with my husband’s company, (M & M Marble), as an Accounting Clerk and I also serve as a cantor at my church. I enjoy reading, history, traveling, and oh yes … SUDOKU too!
