HCPSS 2021-2022 School Calendar
This Related Arts color calendar will show the color rotation for related arts through the school year. Please note that the days of the week students have related arts will change as we move through the color rotation schedule. This is a change from previous years where students knew which specific days of the week they had each related arts class. It is important to remember which related arts is on which color days so that students can be prepared for class, especially with sneakers/tennis shoes on PE days. Classroom teachers would have this information if you need assistance.
