Genius Hour 2018-2019

Genius Hour is a big deal at Walnut El!  It is an opportunity for our students in grades 3-5 to select an elective type activity to learn something new or to enhance an interest they already have.
During the 2018-2019 school year, students will have 3 of their class choices for a period of 8 weeks.  The first class will begin on Thursday, October 4th.  Classes will meet each Thursday from 1:30-2:30.  Our third, fourth, and fifth grade teachers, librarian, and ELS will lead our little geniuses.
Mrs. Takayama will come around to classes between September 4-7 to share this year's Genius Hour class choices.  Students will rank the classes in order of preference and be able to ask questions about what each class involves. 
Looking forward to a great year of activities!!  This year's classes include...
