Additionally, Art Club is offered to students in fourth and fifth grades and meets Fridays after school.
Music classes will follow the Colorado Academic Standards for music and will include movement, singing, instrumental work and composition.

Our P.E. program focuses on the Colorado State Standards for Physical Education K-5. These include locomotor and non-locomotor skills, manipulative skills, rhythmic movements, and fitness activities. These are accomplished through fun activities and games. We also offer an after-school intramural program for third, fourth, and fifth grade students.
In Explore, students will have the opportunity to extend and deepen their learning of classroom concepts through hands-on, open-ended, and creative tasks directly related to grade level content and standards.
