Throughout the day students will be instructed in the following academic areas: literacy (reading, writing, spelling), math, social studies, and science. Students will also receive instruction in social/emotional thinking through our Second Step curriculum 1X per week for the first two trimesters of the school year followed by bullying prevention training.
Along with their academic subjects, students have a 30 minute special four times a week, and a 60 minute special one-time per week. 30 minute specials consist of music and PE. Art comprises the 60 minute special. In addition, students will have library and technology lessons.
Students are given a 40 minute lunch period. It is designed to be 20 minutes for recess and 20 minutes for eating. The current menu is always available on our website. Students may purchase a “hot lunch” or bring a sack lunch from home. Students may purchase a milk or water for a fee regardless of whether or not they purchase the “hot meal”. Children may also purchase a second entree (also known as "doubles") pending our count for the day.
For the 20 minute recess, students must be appropriately dressed for the weather. Winter wear is expected. We will go outside as long as the temperature is above 0 degrees with the wind chill. If there is snow on the ground, students will be required to have snow boots and snow pants to play in the snow. It's always best to dress in layers.
