Here are some basic details about the daily schedule at Mill Falls. Weather permitting, students begin their day by gathering outside.

Lower & Upper Elementary, 6.5 hour day
Every Kinder, Lower and Upper Elementary classroom has an extended morning work period where children are involved in large, small and individual lessons throughout all curriculum areas. During this period, children are introduced to new concepts as well as working on/practicing concepts previously introduced. This includes time for students to have snack.

Following the morning work period, the students have lunch and a midday recess (the order is determined by the overall school schedule). That break time is followed by another afternoon work cycle. Our Lower Elementary students participate in our Integrated Arts Program in the afternoons; our Upper Elementary students have Integrated Arts in the mornings. Our Integrated Arts Program consists of music, art, fitness, technology, and combined cultural arts.

Kindergarten, 6.5 hour day
After an exercise period (outdoors as weather allows), the kindergarten students also begin the day with morning meeting, followed by their morning work cycle, similar to that of the Lower Elementary students (noted above). Students have the opportunity to have snack during morning, and break for recess and lunch midday. That break time is followed by another afternoon work period. Our Kinder students participate in our Integrated Arts Program daily which include music, art and fitness.
