An intervention/extended learning session will be offered four times per day, every day for all students, grades 5 through 8 at Weare Middle School. The new schedule was designed to follow the professional learning community model and offers time each day to safeguard instruction in the core content areas of English, math, science and social studies. The intervention/extended learning sessions will occur in conjunction with core classes and will be held either just after or before each core class.
In addition to the academic schedule change, there will be the new activity of an archery program by physical education teacher Peter Barrasso.
The fall semester at Concord Community Music School will begin Sept. 9. In addition to individual instruction there are workshops, classes, choruses, ensembles and unlimited recital opportunities for all ages. Individual instruction is offered in more than 20 instruments and voice; there is Music and Movement for babies and toddlers, and ensembles, ranging from string ensembles and flute choir to chamber music trios, jazz combos and folk ensembles. Songweavers a cappella women’s chorus will have an open sing Sept. 10 and 11. The Purple Finches children’s chorus for students in kindergarten through grade 8 will meet on Monday afternoons.
Those interested in sampling a Music and Movement class, a Purple Finches rehearsal, Songweavers open sing or other group class or ensemble may attend the first week of class on a trial basis with no obligation.
