Explorers Taking Electives Term 4 or Term 5

Students! If you took art or music in term 4 and/or if you will be taking art, music, or PE 204 in term 5, plan to stop by the school this week from 8am to 2pm to drop off and/or pick up supplies. All transactions will be managed curbside. You should have received an email from your teacher with specific instructions for your class. Students in 7th grade science will receive an email letting them know when to pick up their lab supplies for quarter 3 as well.


Grades for term 4 and Quarter 2

Grades for term 4 and quarter 2 will be posted when we return for second semester, in January.


Interim / IMSSA Testing

We will be having interim testing in January for all 6, 7 , and 8th graders. This testing is to provide data on progress based on the testing done in October.

  • 6th and 7th graders: Testing will be Thursday, January 7. All 6th and 7th graders will report to their first period teacher for testing. Students with flex will report to flex, so lookout for an email with a class code or an invitation to a Meet. If you have 1st period flex and have questions, email Ms V vredenburg@exploreacademy.org

  • 8th graders: Testing will be on January 11, 12, and 13. All 8th graders will report to their non-lunch flex times (periods 1, 2, 6, and 7) for testing. Any questions, please email Ms V vredenburg@exploreacademy.org

  • Make up days will be January 14th and 15th.

The National School Lunch Program is being extended into the spring for all public schools. This means that school lunches are free at this time. Check the Howl each week for the link that provides the weekly lunch menu. These menus are posted a week in advance.
