It is with great pride that I present to you this 21st Century curriculum that guides instruction in 5th and 6th Grade Media Enrichment classes, which meet twice weekly, and 7th and 8th grade flexibly scheduled classes.  This curriculum is cross-curricular and is paced on an as needed basis throughout the school months.   An example is the 5th Grade US Presidential Research Project will be presented this October in keeping with the national presidential election.  Additionally, plans are in the works to highlight "historical fiction" readings through Social Studies and Balanced Literacy classes in the 7th and 8th grade so a Literacy Cafe per grade level will be staged specificially to accommodate these units.
