The competitive sports program includes boys, girls, and coed teams such as flag football, basketball, volleyball, track, swimming and even tennis. Competitive sports start for boys and girls in fifth grade.
The school primarily conveys important information and notifications via email. All academic and disciplinary records are posted in real time via PlusPortals. Teachers are encouraged to maintain an open line of communication with parents through email, phone conversations and in-person conferencing as needed.
Each grade level is given study hall time during the school day, which allows students to get a head start on homework and have teacher assistance. Fifth grade has approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes of homework and receives a 30-minute study hall time.
We want to foster a love of reading at a young age. There is no set amount of time required to read, but reading time is often included in the overall homework time.
