Classes offered at upper school for credit
Minnehaha will be offering classes this summer for the first time, giving students the opportunity to earn semester credit for courses which they are interested in taking but are too busy with other electives to take them during the school year.
The program will cover a semester’s worth of material over a three-week period. Each class will take place from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays from June 11 to June 29. Five classes will be offered, including painting, filmmaking, economics, advanced composition and a math course called Bridge to Calculus.
The courses are intended for personal enrichment rather than to make up for unearned credit.
“It’s mostly to give kids a chance to take classes in a different setting, and a different time, if they might want to do that,” says vice principal Michael DiNardo.
Students may sign up for the classes using the Redhawk Online Registration System in the same way that regular classes are. Registration will be opening soon, and further information will be available through mail. The deadline for sign-ups will be during the first week of June.
