School Initiatives

Moreland student on the swingsSPARKS CLASSES
SPARKS classes are enrichment classes related to our arts and health sciences magnet theme that are offered throughout the school year during the regular school day. All Moreland students choose a SPARKS class that they are interested in after they have reviewed the “course catalog” with their teacher and family. We have both fall and spring sessions of SPARKS classes. At the conclusion of each SPARKS session students have the opportunity to share what they have learned and created in their SPARKS classes during a community Museum Night.
