Genius Hour

In 2015-2016, 4th and 5th graders piloted a Genius Hour program in their science class. This proved to be such a wonderful addition to the curriculum, that for 2016-2017 it has been expanded to include the middle school grades and more teacher support in the areas of art and technology.
