expand on our writing skills. The
students will explore math through different modalities and work on strengthening
their automaticity with their facts. We
are excited for the many Maker Space projects that we have planned. Students will have the opportunity to be
innovative while working as a team. Some

Our Science curriculum includes: Balance
