Our elementary day begins at 8:00 am with Creative and Active Beginnings (CAB time). This is a time in which students may choose how they want to prepare their minds and bodies for learning. They may want to engage in an art project, listen to music, or do some stretching and activity to ease into the learning day.
At 8:30, our students join their class for a morning meeting. This is a time to get reconnected with teachers and peers, do some team building and social skill development, and set the day up for success.
The rest of our elementary day includes instructional blocks in reading/writing, math, science, social studies, and inquiry-based learning project work.
All students have daily "Essentials" classes in PE, Music, or Art.
A mid-morning and afternoon screen and activity break are provided, as well as a 30-minute lunch break.
Wednesday schedules differ from the schedule described above. All students are on an asynchronous independent learning pathway prepared by their teachers. After lunch, students log into their inquiry learning hour and finish the day with Spark Hour (an embedded enrichment learning opportunity for all students).
Our school day ends at 3:05 for our kindergarten students and 3:00 for our older students.
