Let's have perfect on-time attendance. Coming promptly to school at 8:20am is important because classes start immediately with breakfast and our SEL morning program. (Lateness and attendance are recorded in student records. ) Also, remember that school ends at 2:40p.m.
We are currently using the Eureka Math Curriculum! We believe that our scholars should generate “aha” moments and joyful connections when it comes to math! Eureka Math® is the most widely used mathematics curriculum in the United States.
Our students will gain a deeper understanding of the "WHY" behind the numbers, all while making math more enjoyable to learn and teach.
Science - Amplify Science
Amplify Science blends hands-on investigations, literacy-rich activities, and interactive digital tools to empower students to think, read, write, and argue like real scientists and engineers.
We are currently using the Wit & Wisdom curriculum for ELA. The curriculum includes knowledge-rich lessons that provide opportunities for students to share ideas, challenge the thinking of their peers, and answer higher order thinking questions. Along the way, students are empowered with original thought and a questioning spirit
*Social Studies is embedded in the ELA Curriculum!
