Caledonia EnrichED is a non-profit organization dedicated to maintaining and enhancing the quality of educational enrichment opportunities at Caledonia Community Schools through the collaboration of parents, educators, and the community. One program is currently operating under our the umbrella; Caledonia Robotics.
Due to a lack of volunteers, Caledonia Odyssey of the Mind (OM) will not be operating under EnrichED during the 2019-20 season - seeking volunteers for 2020-21 season.
