Maywood Hills operates on a 6-day rotation schedule for specialists.  Our specialist classes include 2 days each of PE and Music and 1 day each of Science and Library. Classes rotate through all of the specialist subjects every 6 days.  Please check with your child's teacher to learn which specialist the class visits on each day of the 6-day rotation.
