For the 2011-2012 school year, there will be a change to the specialists courses offered for 3rd through 6th grade students. For the upcoming school year, children in grades 3, 4, 5 and 6 will have a technology education course. This will be in substitute for one of the their physical education courses. So over the course of a six day cycle children in 3rd – 6th grades will have 1 art class, 1 tech ed class, 1 physical education class, 1 class for library and 2 classes for music. Since 21st century learning is a focus I am excited about the opportunities associated with this change.
Today a parent reminded me that in only 8 short weeks we will be back at school and established with the new routine already. Enjoy every precious moment of summer. If you catch an occasional rainy day, snuggle up with a good book and maybe jump on our math website (linked above) to practice your facts using the FACT DASH for your age group.
