Schedule for Next Year!
With much thought, consideration, and effort, we have created our schedule for next year. We are very
pleased with the outcome and believe that the students and families will be too. Next year, we will operate on a year-long, block schedule with days rotating A (periods 1-4) and B (periods 5-8). The first week will have three A days and two B days, and the following week will have the reverse. We will have a two-week rotation. Days will consist of four 85-90 minute classes, and the A/B rotation results in an eight-period schedule. All of this information may make it difficult to visualize, so click here so that you can see our new and improved schedule for next year. You’ll notice that every morning has a built-in time when the students should have a snack and/or break. Each week also has club time, advisory time, and seminar time. Therefore, along with a dependable rotation(Day A and Day B), we were very intentional about also allowing for non-academic time while considering a healthy flow to the day.
“Khoa is an amazing League of Legends player. He has been consistent and has led the team in K.D.A. and C.S. all season. As our season last year was cut short, this was our first official season and Khoa helped guide the team with poise and precision. Khoa was a tremendous leader and helped pull the team together over the final few weeks. While we came up short of our goal of winning state, Khoa’s personality and leadership have set us up for success for next season and beyond. He is a true Spartan!“ – Zack Farmer, Head Coach, eSports
