Please send in a healthy snack, your child’s Chromebook (if doing online curriculum), and any workbooks your child needs to access their curriculum.

Student from 4-8th may attend Mondays and Wednesdays from 9am-12pm. Students are divided into age level appropriate classrooms.

 

What is the fee for the Arete Resource Center?

The Resource Center is free as we feel it is very important for the student to have academic and social time together and for our staff to get to know the students.

 

What do students do while at the Arete Resource Center?

Students work on their individual lessons with trained and credentialed staff to support them. For K-8 we have an Art History lesson each month with an accompanying hands-on art project. For K-5, we teach a Science or Social Studies lesson each day, attend library twice a month and complete a craft project. K-3 has a hands-on lesson taught each month by a Science Specialist.

Students can use their Instructional Funding to attend additional enrichment classes. Writing and typing labs are available for 4-8th and Science and Reading labs for 6-8th. K-8 students are invited to participate in additional monthly enrichment classes such as sewing machine lessons, hand stitching, yoga, ceramics, acrylic painting, cooking, and many more

 

How do field trips work?

Arete pays for field trip fees for all enrolled students. Some field trips may have a participant cap. Families and siblings need to pay for themselves. Most field trips are all age, for the exception of when the location hosting the field trip has an age requirement or limit.
