Leonardo da Vinci Middle School Electives
Fine Art – All students take art twice a week on Tuesday and Thursday
Multi-Media Class – Our multi-media students are responsible for researching, writing, and posting articles about LdV to The Da Vinci Times, our very own student generated website. Additionally, students in our multi-media class use our MacBook Airs to create weekly news videos about events and goings on at our school. They also take a field trip to Intel in Folsom, and participate in Intel’s PC Pals program.
Global Contemporary Issues
Middle School Band
Blues Band – This course is sponsored by “I Can Do That” Very Special Arts. Participating in our Blues Band allows students to learn new instruments, including guitar, bass, drums, etc. and/or develop their vocal skills by becoming one of the band’s singers. This course is co-taught by an LdV teacher, and our very own artist-in-residence, Ned Hammad.
Teaching Assistant – Students develop a variety of skills when they sign up to be a Teaching Assistant. They help run small groups in our primary classes, work one-on-one with kindergarten students who need a little extra help, run copies for teachers, help put up bulletin boards, etc. There is never a dull moment for our TAs.
