How will a sense of school community be maintained between the two campuses?
This is an important topic and various approaches will be explored. Everything from one or two special days when the Arco Iris middle school students will be on the elementary campus all or part of the day (perhaps for Jog-a-thon, a concert, field day, joint assemblies, etc) to pen pals between a middle class and an elementary class. This topic will also be framed as a social studies challenge question for the middle school students. With their participation and creativity, other ideas will be considered.
The topic of how to manage the jog-a-thon will be discussed with the leadership of the Arco Iris PTO.
