What are T3 days?
T3s are designed to provide a fun and instructional morning where students attend class on campus. The classes revolve around a theme chosen for each particular grade level. Students will learn about and explore their topic in depth by participating in activities that incorporate science, history, art, math, language arts, and more. Why are they called T3 days?? Third Thursday Theme days, which grew to include Tuesdays as well, are held the week of the third Tuesday of each month!
Watch as the various classes update their web pages. You'll be able to see just what your student will be doing each time they come to T3!
