SPECIAL AND AFTERSCHOOL PROGRAMS

Instrumental Music for 5th & 6th Grade Students

Instrumental instruction is offered to interested elementary pupils in beginning and advanced band and stringed instruments. There is no charge for this instruction; however, families are expected to rent or purchase the instrument used. Information about musical instrument rental locations and district scholarship information will be provided by the music teacher. All students are encouraged to participate.

Speech and Hearing Therapist

A speech and hearing therapist is assigned to our school. Early in the school year the therapist will screen all students in grades K- 6 and new enrollees for hearing problems. During the year the therapist will conduct classes for students with speech problems.

Student Services

The Edmonds School District offers a number of special services to students through Special Education funded programs. Special classes are available for students with identified conditions, which interfere significantly with their educational progress. Support services to students who qualify are provided by Speech and Hearing Therapists, Physical/Occupational Therapists, School Psychologists and Itinerant Teachers. Parents who feel their child has a possible condition which significantly affects his/her school progress should contact the school principal (425.431.7374) or Student Services (425.431.7200) to discuss mutual concerns.

The Child Study Team is a weekly meeting of the school counselor/psychologist, school nurse, learning support teacher, principal, and classroom teachers to determine the best educational strategies for meeting the needs of individual students. Teachers or parents may refer students to the Child Study Team.

MOVE 60

This district sponsored program encourages and provides opportunities for students to exercise and move for 60 minutes per day over four school days. The MOVE 60 program is scheduled Monday-Thursday from 2:30-3:30 pm. The program goal is to fight childhood obesity, improve student health issues, offer an opportunity to play sports, and to provide the physical, social and emotional benefits of extra exercise to students. Families must provide transportation following the program. Space is limited to 50 participants over the span of three different sessions (fall, winter and spring). Information and student participation applications are sent home with students prior to the start of each session.

Afterschool Programs

Additional afterschool programs may be provided to students including Foreign Language Clubs, Art Wizards and/or Math Club. These activities could be sponsored by the school or may be sponsored by an outside organization. Information will be made available to all families regarding afterschool activities and clubs on a yearly basis.
