International Crafts
Geared toward 6th - 8th graders.  This course is a study of the traditional arts and crafts of various cultures around the world.  We will look briefly at the lives of the different people groups, and then try our hand at creating some of the art that they produced.  Some of the projects will include bead weaving, sand painting, scrimshaw hand built pottery and batik, to name a few.  There will be an art fee and homework.

Critical Thinking for Middle School – full year class
The objective of the Critical Thinking class is to teach students “to think logically, present well-developed arguments, and see through unsupported arguments”.  In addition, the students will learn how to solve logic puzzles and brain teasers.

 

Parents are welcome to provide outside sources for electives including but not limited to:  private music lessons, chorus, band, private dance instruction, Math Counts, and community clubs.  To receive placement for these electives on the student’s report card, please submit by week 33, a course description and log of activity time.
