Important: Special Subjects News!

Because you have asked… Good to know info about your child’s specials:

  • Kindergarten has live PE, Library, Spanish, and Art/Music each week.
  • Grade 1 has live Art, Music, PE, Peace, Library, and Spanish classes every week.
  • Grade 2-5 has alternating live Art, Music, Peace, and Spanish on an A/B week schedule (see your child’s daily schedule for links to their LIVE classes).
  • Grades 2-5 have PE every week.

Grading for specials will be based on the rubric below. We realize that some students will have technology issues and be unable to attend live classes sometimes. All the classwork and assignments can be accessed through the “independent work” buttons at the bottom of their Canvas class. Please note that because Peace Class is a social emotional learning program it is not graded, however attendance is still required.
