Extra Credit Event:

Extra credit events will be listed here.  An extra credit event, is an event or activity that has to do with something we are learning about.  Some examples would be a Renaissance fair, art exhibit, play, culture fair, etc.  Extra credit option must be complete during a student's 7th grade school year.  Options for extra credit will be listed here.  Students may also suggest extra credit events as well but they must be approved ahead of time.   Students are allowed two extra credit events per trimester.  To Receive extra credit students must produce some sort of evidence that they have attended an event.  This evidence could be anything from a receipt to a Photo of you there having fun.  Finally when choosing events I prefer students find events they would not be required to do every year.  The idea behind an extra credit event, is for kids to experience new things and cultures.  If you have any questions feel free to ask.
