On April 17, middle grades students kicked off Minimester, a week of elective courses in which students explore various areas of interests. The goal of Minimester is to expose students to topics and experiences the ordinary schedule doesn’t allow. These elective courses run for half or full days and offer opportunities to use the city as an extension of the classroom.
