Beginning in grade 6, students begin to take a self-selected Classical Enrichment class. These classes are held every Monday, and last for 85 minutes. Students have the opportunity to choose from enrichment classes in Math, Science, ELA, History, Technology, Music (both instrumental and vocal), drama, art, and dance. Each class lasts throughout the 13 weeks of the trimester, and students switch classes at the end of each Trimester.
For the 2015-2016 academic year, each 6th grade student will be enrolled in a research skills class for the first term Enrichment Block. This class is mandatory. This class will be taught by both Mrs. Word and Mrs. Ward, as well as the 6-8th grade Inclusion Teacher and an Inclusion Assistant. This is the only mandatory Enrichment Block Class.
In order to be registered for a Classical Enrichment Block class, please submit your child’s first, second and third choice for each trimester of the year, via this Google document.
For term 1, Students entering Grade Six should please select the mandatory Research Class for Grade 6 as your first, second and third choice. Please choose your first, second and third choice selections for Term 2 and Term 3.
Students in Grades Seven and Eight should place their first, second and third choice selections for all three terms.
Online sign-ups will be held through June 15th.
