  • STUDY TIME
  • EXTRA TIME TO FACILITATE UNDERSTANDING
  • TRYING SOMETHING NEW 

​Flex takes place on Thursdays from 9:38 to 10:40am. See the Flex Bell Schedule here.

PURPOSE OF FLEX

  • Revisit concepts or re-learn needed skills
  • Time for make-up tests, projects, assignments
  • Extension activities to advance skills and abilities of those who already understand concepts being taught

STUDENT EXPECTATIONS

  • Flex is a requirement, not an option.
  • You will be in class and participating, not wandering the halls.
  • You should be engaged in the activity.
  • You must attend the session you are assigned to or have chosen.
  • Late/Absences are treated the same as regular classes. Attendance is mandatory (If you do not choose a session, you will go to your default teacher - period 1 teacher).
