Specialists

Specialist Classes

Each student’s day includes one 55-minute class with a specialist in art, music, physical education, or media. Band is an elective pull-out program for fourth and fifth-grade students.

Highlights of each specialist area include:

Art

An art standards-based curriculum for K-5 taught in a fun and creative atmosphere. The elements and principles of design, art history, cultures, and many techniques are taught through a variety of mediums.

Music

Singing; note reading; movement; musical vocabulary; rhythm instruments

Media

A full computer lab.  The Library offers the only "Open Library" Program in MPS. This "Open Library" program encourage all students to check out titles whenever they have a need or want.

Physical Education

Non–competitive atmosphere; lifetime sports/games; fitness and health emphasis.

Band/Strings:

All 5th graders learn how to play a musical instrument as part of their academic curriculum. Students choose a Band or String instrument. We have school instruments to lend to each student, and a supplies donation is requested but not required. Students participate in weekly, distanced small group lessons, and we hope to add full band practice when it is safe to do so.
