Library

The library’s central location speaks immediately to students of the importance of books in their lives. In addition, it provides story time, ready access to research materials, computers, maker space opportunities, and a community gathering space.

Music

Our full-time general music program is hands-on with real-world music making experiences that are standards based. The music curriculum builds on student interests, abilities, knowledge and skills from year to year.

Students participate in a range of culminating projects and performances that celebrate their individual as well as collective growth in a group setting.

The music program offers something for every student as students learn to sing, play instruments, compose and arrange music, read and write music, listen analytically and make cross curricular connections through music while integrating dance, drama and visual arts to enrich student learning.

Culminating performances foster student leadership and are designed to include students at each grade level whether performing at assemblies, evening concerts, school-wide events, or out within the community.

We also have a part time instrumental instructor who conducts weekly classes in string, woodwind, and brass instruments for our 4th and 5th grade students

PE

All of our students participate in physical education for at least ½ of the school year. We have 2 full-time PE teachers. The effort is to teach students to " learn to move " and to " move to learn ".

It is developmentally appropriate, student centered, inclusive, and focuses on presenting a variety of movement options for learning, leisure, and for life.
