Specials Color Rotation

We have six different specials classes (Art, Career Connections, Healthy Living, Latin/Classics Studies, Music, and Physical Education). Students will attend each class on a rotating rainbow schedule all year. Each day of school will be a red day, orange day, yellow day, green day, blue day or purple day. 

This schedule will ensure that students won’t miss the same specials each time we have a scheduled day off. When we miss a day of school, the next day will be the next color in the rainbow. 

For example, rather than students having Healthy Living every Monday; they will have Healthy Living every RED day.

Exception: In the event of a snow day, the snow make-up day will be the color of whatever day was missed.

Please see the rainbow schedule for your child’s class.
