Special Areas are of great value for our students. Students apply what they have learned in the classroom to their special area classes. Attending special area classes is often the highlight of the day for many children. This is a time during the day where creativity soars. Special areas play a key role in educating the whole child.
Unfortunately, the restrictions Covid-19 has caused has changed the way we are able to deliver the speical areas' curriculum to our students. Currently our special areas teachers come into the classroom for art, library, PE, and music for 20 minutes. Students in both the AM and PM cohort receive specials. PE is moving to the gym beginning in Quarter 2.
Once we are able to return to a normal, full day schedule, specials will return to the full amount of time for all students.
