School Day Schedule
Foote’s schedule was developed to support student learning and success. Children’s days are rich and stimulating, and play is a priority; every grade goes outside for recess twice a day. Our schedule is tailored to each age level based on a clear understanding of child development. Each day balances time for active learning with periods for reflection to nurture the whole child.
Foote operates on a six-day cycle (A-F Days). Most class periods are 45 minutes; art and some science classes are 90 minutes each. The core subjects are taught 5-6 times per cycle.

The seventh grade Heroes Project combines art and humanities in a fun and challenging way that lets students explore their values. After writing an essay on a person they admire, students draw a portrait using craypas on cardboard.
When a student in my classroom shows curiosity in a topic, we have the flexibility in our schedules to spend a little extra time on it because we're not teaching toward a test. We're able to explore what our students are interested in and, in doing so, validate their curiosity
