Students in grades kindergarten-four will also have the opportunity to participate in mini-classes that include:

• Art,

• Cooking,

• Introduction to Sports,

• LEGOs.

Be sure to check out our district webpage (www.montroseschools.org) for more information about class dates, tuition fees, and directions for enrollment. Class sizes are limited so early sign-up is highly encouraged.
