New Daily Schedule

We are rolling out a new daily schedule. We are excited about this shift as it allows time for us all, students and staff alike, to have time allotted to invest in the care of our community.

Each day, we will begin with the entire student body and faculty engaging in activities with a focus on some area of our school. These are called Focus Activities. The Four Focus Activities are:

– Farm/Garden
– Dog/Shelter Program
– Community Care
– Service Learning

These four activities are designed to keep us all in touch with the community in general and to reignite our investment in our school.

With the day now beginning with focus activities, classes will commence later in the morning. In addition to the morning changes, evening time (formerly Fourth Period) will also be shifting to something new. Students will now participate in recreation/leisure activities with the same group for three weeks at a time. These activities will be large muscle activities for students not signed up for Physical Education that term. Activities may include weight room, dog walking, adventure education experience, etc. The other students will be involved in organized recreational groups.

We are all excited about the possibilities this new schedule and our community time will create. Here is the new schedule:
