Specials Schedule Changes

Willow Creek Parents,

The Specials Teachers wanted to inform you of a schedule change that has been made during your child’s PE, ART, and MUSIC classes.  The reason for this change was to reduce the large class size in PE.  Your child was assigned a COLOR and they will follow that schedule weekly for Specials.  All classes are mixed so your child will not be traveling with their homeroom class during their Specials time.  This will give your child a chance to interact with other friends in their grade.  Please ask your child what their COLOR is for Specials and take note of their schedule below.  Remind your child to wear tennis shoes on their PE and Music days!  If you have any questions with this new schedule, please email the PE, Music and Art teachers.

Sincerely,

The Specials Team
