Science: Students will find out about themselves and the world by asking questions, observing, experimenting, organizing information, and drawing conclusions using a theme approach.
Art: Students will have opportunities to observe and create using a variety of art materials, which will include exploration of color, texture, form, and expression of ideas, integrated with other subjects.
Music: Students will have formal music instruction twice weekly with a Music Specialist. In addition, the curriculum and classroom themes will be enhanced with musical experiences, including religious and secular music.
Physical Education: Students will have formal instruction twice weekly with a P.E. Specialist. In class and during recess, students will also be expected to participate in activities involving motor skills, teamwork and sportsmanship.
