Something for everyone.
An integral part of growing as a learning organization is providing innovative practices for the families we serve. In an effort to enhance the program offerings at CES our students will have a choice of three academy options beginning with first grade in the 2017-2018 school year.
Each academy, while offering the full array of content from the state standards for ELA, Math, Science and Social Studies, will have a specific enrichment focus. The three academy options are STEM, Performing Arts, and Dual Language (Spanish).
The STEM Academy will provide additional opportunities to participate in STEM experiences such as project-based learning, problem-based learning, Makerspace, coding, gardening and much more! Additionally teachers will work to integrate STEM into the appropriate points in the current frameworks for ELA, Math and Science.
Performing Arts Academy
The Performing Arts Academy will offer drama, visual, and choral performance opportunities to students. Parents will have quarterly opportunity to observe the performances from the work in this academy. In addition teachers will incorporate music and movement along with Reader’s Theater into the current frameworks for ELA, Math, Social Studies, and Science.
Dual Language Academy
The focus of the Dual Language Academy will be Spanish. Students will learn foundational Spanish such as counting, colors, days of the week, months of the year and additional words. Teachers will develop opportunities for students to practice and apply the language learned in current frameworks for ELA, Math Social Studies and Science as appropriate.
