Gym and Recess

Starting next week we will begin bringing students in PE over to Colt Park for class. Your child should wear sneakers and bring a water bottle on PE days.

At lunch we will be bringing students to Colt Park for recess if they would like to go. We will have assigned days for each grade to have an opportunity to walk to the park.

Hello Arts Families!!! Hope you all had a fantastic week!!!. Here at Arts Middle we like building relationships with our families. So every week we will feature three of our staff members.
