FRIDAY

 

Important Friday Information for Families:

Program Hours for K-8 students: 8:30 - 3:25

  • K-2 students remain with a homeroom teacher and have specials like PE, Music, Computers, and Library

  • 3rd-8th grade students rotate every 55 minutes to Computers, Composition, Coding, Science, Art, Music, and PE, with the option of Orchestra

 

Due to the number of instructional minutes that 7th and 8th graders are required to have in the state of Arizona, Eagleridge has always expected 7th and 8th graders to complete more hours on another day of the program.  Friday alone does not meet the minutes necessary for Eagleridge to receive funding.  Therefore, 7th and 8th grade students will need to come an additional day; Monday or Tuesday/Thursday OR choose the following option so we were able to keep the program funded.   

 

Friday 7th & 8th grade students who choose to attend on Friday only will also be enrolled in the Student Council Connections class that will meet the following days and times:
