Students generally arrive at school
between 7:40 and 7:50 so that they can empty their backpacks into cubbies and
prepare for the first class. The school day begins with silence at 8:00
am and runs until 3:30 pm except on Tuesdays, when school ends at 2:00
pm. Students who arrive after the 8:00 bell are required to wait in the
lobby until silence ends.
Class periods are 40 minutes long.
Students spend the most time with their homeroom teacher; “special” classes
rotate through the day and through the year. There is a mid-morning
break from 9:40 – 10:00.
All 5/6 students go to PE class from
11:30 – 12:30 each day. This class is followed by lunch. There are
generally three class periods in the afternoon following lunch.
All Middle School students attend
Meeting for Worship in groups of varying sizes on Thursday mornings for
approximately one-half hour. The advisory curriculum is taught by the
homeroom or the Middle School counselor. Rehearsal and Drop Everything and Read
(DEAR) time occur in the afternoons, and the final period of each Friday is set
aside for Middle School assemblies.
