Please note that teachers adapt this schedule to their students’ needs. Some of our special programs (Art in Action, Library Time, etc.) are not reflected on this schedule as they vary by classroom.
4th Grade Exploratory Wheel
4th Grade students will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of exploratory classes including Music Fundamentals, MakerSpace, and Spanish. These classes are meant to encourage exploration and creativity while providing a sampling of classes that may be available at CMS. Students will attend one class each trimester on A Days (Monday/Wednesday) or B Days (Tuesday/Friday) opposite their PE class.
5th Grade Electives - Band/Orchestra/Art
CMS Band, Orchestra, and Art teachers will provide classes to our students two days a week. Students will be assigned A Day (Monday/Thursday) or B Day (Tuesday/Friday) for their elective class.
Fitness & Wellness
Our CMS Fitness & Wellness teachers will provide PE to our 4th & 5th grade students two days a week. Students will be assigned A Day or B Day for their PE Class, opposite their electives.
Once a week, students have an additional enrichment block. In some cases these are taught by outside specialists and in other cases they are taught by classroom teachers. 4th graders will participate in a rotation of Garden, Technology, and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Mathematics) Activities on Thursday afternoons. 5th graders will rotate between Choir, Garden and MakerSpace on Wednesday mornings.
In addition, students will have opportunities for Social-Emotional Learning (SEL), Digital Citizenship, Library Time, Art in Action (sponsored by our PTA), and a variety of other programs throughout the week.
