Activity Period

Activity period is a twenty-minute period scheduled in the morning on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. During this time, teachers offer trimester long mini-courses that fall outside of the realm of our regular classes. Students select an activity that offers an opportunity to try something new or allows them to become more involved with something they already enjoy. Activity period is also a time to build a deeper sense of community as students from different grade levels have the chance to work together. Previously offered mini-courses include:  

  • Math Counts

  • Yearbook

  • Drama

  • Strategy games

  • T-shirt reconstruction 

  • Stop motion animation

  • Eco-ASMS 

  • Trash can percussion

  • Fantasy baseball 

  • Outdoor artists

  • Knitting
