EXPLORE banner


Every Thursday our students dismiss at 2:05 in order for our teachers to participate in professional development. We understand that not every family will be able to pick their child/ren up at that time. EXPLORE! is an option for families that is of no additional charge. EXPLORE! offers meaningful opportunities for our students to engage in from 2:05-3:05. On these days, students have the opportunity to attend elective classes and explore new learning topics. In the past, fine arts, vocal and instrumental music, physical education, critical thinking games, arts and crafts, etc. have been offered. In addition, during this time families have the opportunity to sign up their child for some of our after school programs.


EXPLORE! sessions last roughly 7-8 weeks.  At the beginning of each session, students in K-8th grade who stay on a regular basis are given a survey.  For each elective offered students indicate if they are very interested, interested or not interested at all.  Students are then divided evenly amongst the elective groups.

Students in pre-school stay with the aide of the classroom to continue their afternoon schedule in a smaller group.
