MIDDLE ELEMENTARY: Owls

Our middle elementary class this year is comprised of ages 7, 8 and 9 year olds. They will largely be doing 2nd 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 an art-infused curriculum this year that will include many projects to go with their studies—culminating in an art show toward the end of the year. They will also participate in the science fair in the winter.

Teachers: Ms Debbie and Mr Smith
