|First Day of Second Grade|
- Gym twice weekly (this sometimes includes ice skating in the winter months)
- Swimming lessons once weekly (Yes, at school)
- Art once a week for two hours
- Religion twice weekly
- Later on this year she will pick an instrument and begin learning that. This is a departure from most US schools where instruments are not picked up (band) until grade six (unless taken privately before then).
She attends classical/modern ballet on Monday's and will soon begin tap/jazz and possibly hip- hop (class has not yet met minimum student requirements). Some have expressed that she is doing too many extracurricular activities outside of school, however, she loves to dance. It is her outlet. Military children, especially, need outlets. For Olivia, dance is therapy of sorts.
I can't wait to see the changes in her that come about due to having such a rich curriculum this year!
