For two weeks this spring, all Friends School of Minnesota fifth and sixth grade students took “elective” classes. These fun classes allow students to explore a topic/activity without grades, homework, or stress!

The first week’s electives included drama games with Rebecca, cooking with Lili, Scrabble tournament with Anna, and sock animals with Melissa.
