Fourth- and fifth-graders in a Clay Center began a new program that emulates the Tiger Hour at CCCHS and the Bengal Hours at CCCMS -- an hour in which elementary students too will have some freedom in selecting what they’ll be learning.

Garfield Elementary began a “Bengal Innovations Hour” today, and are using that hour to implement “some awesome engagement classes” that teachers learned about in a trip to a school in Colorado. Principal Sarah Adams reported in the school’s monthly report to the USD-379 school board that the school has changed what that school is doing slightly to help them fit the school’s goals and the students they serve.
