Our middle elementary class this year is comprised of ages 8 to 9 year olds. They will largely be doing 3rd through 4th grade work. However, as in all our classes due to the INDIVIDUALIZED attention they receive, some students will be able to work ahead or catch up as needed in various subjects.
This class usually takes tennis as the sports elective, but they will also have a social studies and/or art project time daily with Ms. D, so they will be busy as can be this year.
We intend to have a science fair again this year in February/March and possibly an art show sometime in April.
