Each grade participates in music class at least once a week. Mr. Arriaga works with the students in the areas of music appreciation and music theory. Our students cover all sorts of musical skills from chorale singing to identifying different types of music. In middle school, students are given the opportunity to specialize in the instrument in their choice and are proficient by the time they reach 8th Grade.
Each grade participates in Spanish class three times per week. This course covers a variety of topics to practice our listening, reading, writing, and speaking skills. We partner with Fun Fluency for Spanish instruction. Fun Fluency uses a teaching system that creates an immersion experience for students, while at the same time ensuring understanding. One of the main components of our methodology is TPRS (Teaching proficiency through Reading and Storytelling).
Our K-8 Spanish classes are grouped by heritage/native Spanish speakers, and students who are new to the Spanish language.
Each grade participates in Physical Education. Students develop personal fitness routines, learn rules for various sports, practice different athletic skills, and discuss numerous health topics.
