We desire to maximize the opportunity for a student to grow and achieve. We know that when a student needs extra help in a core subject that extra time is essential. To assist families in providing maximum time for core course instruction, students will be invited to receive an elective at the end of the first term, after standardized testing scores are reviewed between the parent and teacher. Students performing at proficient levels can choose one elective: art or music.
Foreign Language: Outside of these school-issued courses, students are welcome to use a free, online foreign language course through www.DuoLingo.com at their own pace.
Typing Practice and Tutorials: In addition, students are encouraged to use an online typing tutorial program. We recommend all students in grades 2 and higher participate in daily typing practice.
Summary: Students can select art or music after fall standardized testing is completed and proficiency is demonstrated.
