Where ideas are hatching? and children are exploring.
Enrichment opportunities are offered to students exhibiting high performance capability in intellectual, creative, artistic, leadership or specific academic areas. While students are not formally identified as gifted until the end of fourth grade, many opportunities exist in order for students to fully develop their potential. These classes may take the form of enrichment workshops, independent projects, curricular extensions and other assorted pull out or whole class courses.
Kindergarten children come to music class once a week, while students in grades one through four have music class twice weekly. In music classes children sing, play classroom instruments, move, dance, listen to a variety of musical styles from many cultures, become literate musicians, and hopefully develop an appreciation of and love for music that will last a lifetime.

We believe that Physical Education is a phase of education which makes unique and important contributions to the total development of all students. A healthy body and sound mind complement each other and are frameworks for optimum mental effectiveness. Movement begins before birth and continues throughout life. It is the children's way of learning about themselves and the world around them. It is their way of learning by doing. A Chinese proverb states, "I hear and forget; I see and I remember; I do and I understand." We are the part of education that MOVES!
Our program includes lessons and activities that should enhance your child's skills in motor development as well as contribute to self-esteem, positive interpersonal relationships, responsible behavior and independence.
Students have Spanish class twice per week. They learn about the Spanish language and Hispanic cultures through songs, games, storybooks, and thematic units linked to cross-curricular content, celebrations and Latino arts.
Culture and language are intricately intertwined. Therefore, learning another language teaches tolerance and acceptance and benefits all students, regardless of career or educational goals. Señorita Jessica Owens is teaching Spanish this year, and you can find resources at Señora Harris' Spanish Website.
