News & Information

What is Genius Hour?
Genius hour is a movement that allows students to explore their own passions and encourages creativity in the classroom. It provides students a choice in what they learn during a set period of time during school.

When is Genius Hour?
Every Friday

What do students do?
Activities are planned and constructed that provide students choice to create, explore, build, invent, plan, make up, improve, construct, imagine, test, evaluate, and change.  We are using a station approach where students sign up Friday morning for their activity.  Currently we have 4 activity areas including Maker Space, Games, Library, Dance.  We will be adding more areas to include opportunities for students to learn coding or research a topic of their choice.

Who can help?
Any community member, parent, or grandparent who has a skill, craft, or time is invited to contact the office to volunteer.
