  • Encore is the name for those awesome extra classes that our kids go to each day, like PE, Music and Art. At WGES we are on a 7-day Encore rotation with the following classes making up the 7 days: 2 days of high impact PE, 1 day of Music, 1 day of Art, 1 day of low impact PE and 2 days of Science lab. The order and rotation of these classes is different for each homeroom class and will be communicated by your Homeroom Teacher. Be sure that your kids have athletic shoes for each day of PE both high and low impact.
