    Group Lessons
    I.M. is no longer a separate class!
    In fifth grade, IM lessons are 30-35 minutes long.  They take place in the afternoons, once a week.  The lessons are on a rotating schedule so the students do not miss the same class too often.  Students are able to make up missed assignments with the help of their peers and teachers.  IM teachers are flexible when conflicts arise.
