Our electives are offered from 12:30-2:30 and can change per semester.
Our elective classes are to immerse students in different aspects of learning in a more social class setting. Students have the chance to work in groups, learn to code, learn new aspects of physical activity, and maybe discover a passion they never new they had!
Each class will be offered twice a week and the student is required to attend both classes. The same four classes will be offered Monday and Tuesday or Tuesday and Thursday. Students may not switch between the different classes each week.
All classes will be graded and will be noted on your report card. The goal is have each child engaged in the classes he or she has signed up for. Additionally, failing to come to class, coming late, misbehaving, and/or not participating will be noted.
If a student has decided not to enroll in an elective class, they must be picked up.

Growth Mindset refers to a belief that intelligence is able to be developed and effort is the key to mastery. Mindfulness is different from a growth mindset. Mindfulness focuses on awareness whereby one observes and non-judgementally pays attention to inner states (such as thoughts or feelings) while understanding what is happening outside the body in the world.
