More Birney @ Home Resources from our Birney Specials

Birney is unique in many ways we offer additional programs that are not offered in other elementary schools. We believe in teaching the whole child. Specials includes: Spanish, Arts, Garden, Physical Education and Music. Students attend these classes weekly and are aligned to what they are learning in the classroom.

Specials enable our teachers to collaborate as a team once a week while their students go to highly engaging enrichment classes.

Please make a note of your children's specials day so you can help our students remember to come prepared: dress for Physical Education (athletic shoes are a MUST); art (clothes might get messy), and to bring their library book so they can return it and check-out a new book.

If your children find transitions challenging, you may want to prepare them for specials day ahead of time. Remind them they will visit several areas of the school and see several teachers throughout the day. If your child is struggling academically, the teachers may keep your child out of specials for one or two classes to provide additional instruction.

If your son or daughter is already enjoying their creative classes at Birney, Ask them about their day in "specials". They will have a lot to talk about.
