As hard to believe as it may seem, it is a little over one month until registration begins for the new THESIS school year!
In an effort to make teaching -- and learning -- easier for everyone, we have split up the younger classes, once again.
This year, kindergarten will be a group by itself, as well as first grade. These will be groups A and B, respectively. Then group C will be grades 2-3, group D will be grades 4-5, group E will be grades 6-8 (middle school) and then grades 9-12 will be group F.
Another thing we did this year is split up the classes for the middle school grades, group E. Instead of two 1-hour classes, they will have three 40 minute classes, like the lower grades. High schoolers will still have two 1-hour classes.
Here is the proposed schedule for the new year:
Preschool classes will be held this year, and helpers are needed. Details will be provided at the registration meeting on Tuesday, August 14th.
