Calendar PlanningWe want to hear from parents, patrons, and staff as we start work on a calendar for the 2020-21 School Year. Our current calendars are built with a lot of assumptions about the kinds of things that are important such as a week break at Thanksgiving, a two-week break at Christmas or a week off at Spring Break. Please complete this short survey so we know whether these things are still important. Questions about the calendar? Send them to us

sciencekidsD91 is currently reviewing new science materials in K-8 to align with Idaho's new science standards. A committee of teachers has spent the last year reviewing different options and has made the following recommendations to the Board of Trustees:

  • Kindergarten: Picture Perfect Science by National Science Teachers Association Press. 
  • Grades 1-5: Building Blocks of Science 3D by Carolina Biological Supply Company. 
  • Grades 6-8: STEMscopes by Accelerate Learning, Inc. 

Parents, patrons and staff are encouraged to review the materials and provide input. The Board of Trustees is expected to adopt the new science materials at its May meeting. Questions or feedback? Send them to us
