Schedule and Calendar

Schedule

Our day runs from 8:00 am to 3:50 pm. (Dismissal begins at 3:40 for kindergarten and 3:50 for the older kids) We have nine class periods, and a nap time for kindergarteners.

Recess happens every day, even if our teachers have to bundle up to take your kids out.

We begin each day with Morning Meeting, a chance to gather together on the carpet, share news and talk about the day ahead. Three days a week we end with choice time, where the children chose from block play, dress up, and other creative options. Classes include:

Reading Yoga Math
Dance Art Science
Music Spanish Gym
History Geography

Calendar

The school calendar includes 184 instructional days. The school is closed on Federal holidays but does not give all the same holidays as the DoE.

On most Thursdays students are dismissed at 12:10 pm to allow for teacher professional development.
