It is recommended that students try the Advanced Chorus before choosing to continue in the Middle School choral program. Chorus meets from September through May at 8 a.m. on Mondays for girls and Wednesdays for boys. We perform two concerts each year.

FIRST LEGO League Jr. is designed to introduce STEM concepts to kids ages 6 to 9 while exciting them through a brand they know and love − LEGO┬«. Guided by two adult Coaches, teams (up to 6 members, grades K-4) explore a real-world scientific problem such as food safety, recycling, energy, etc. Then they create a Show Me poster that illustrates their journey of discovery and introduces their team. They also construct a motorized model of what they learned using LEGO elements. In the process, teams learn about teamwork, the wonders of science and technology, and the FIRST LEGO League Jr. Core Values, which include respect, sharing, and critical thinking.
