8th Period Activities

We are looking forward to our 8th period activities beginning next week. I have listed descriptions and the rotations below. Combinations of students 5-7-years-old and other combinations of students 8-11-years-old will be divided into groups of ten. Each group will participate in an activity for one week, then rotate to the next activity for the next week. I can’t list the names of the students here, but once you know the name of the activity your child begins with on Monday and the group’s name (alligators, armadillos, bears, etc.), you’ll know what the coming weeks will hold. This will continue for six weeks, then the activities will change for the next six weeks.
