Cup O' Noodles (we like to keep some on hand for students without lunches)
Every student has a time in the day when they are at their optimal learning level. Some kids are morning learners and some are better after lunch. To ensure the students experience each class during that time, we employ a rotating schedule. Every three weeks (or so) we'll rotate the schedule. Below are the three different schedules we employ throughout the school year.
Here's to an amazing 2015-2016 school year!!
