1st hour:

Spanish Basics-with Marcie Smith

The fine print first: I’m not fluent in Spanish, and I won’t make your kids fluent either. But I can help to lay the foundation that students can build upon in the years to come. We will have fun learning about the Spanish alphabet, basic Spanish words and phrases, and grammar en Español! There will be songs and games and books in Spanish, and we will learn about countries and cultures where the language is spoken. ¡Vamos! It will be a good time!

$10 Supply fee

Fun!  Some of the animal specimens include worm, frog, fish, and starfish.  The class will be put in pairs of students.  Each pair of students will share a dissection kit.   It’ll be a hands on science class with no homework.  $25


(6th grade only) Ignite Township with Lydia Campbell

This class will take a hands-on approach to learning government and economics. We will be focusing on local government and will occasionally touch on state and national. We will design, run, and sustain a classroom mini-city as we learn about political structure, city positions, electing officials and much more! Each student will have a job in the town such as mayor, police chief, treasurer, judges and more. We may explore topics such as gun ownership in our town and things of that nature (but we won’t go much more mature than that). We plan to share our town with Ignite in a slide show at the end of the year for all to see! $15
