Beginning this school year, Westside Community Schools has created a common master elementary schedule, which should make things simpler for parents/guardians and their children. “Specials” (physical education, music, art, and foreign language) are on a four-day rotation. Below is a pdf that lists numbers, which represent the four different “specials” for the next six weeks of the academic year for all elementary school. Your child’s teacher will communicate which number (one through four) corresponds to the special activity for the day.
Also, for the parents/guardians of fifth and sixth grade band/strings students, the pdf also includes information on band/string cycle days.
Specials Calendar through the end of January
