Harding Elementary school is the second largest elementary building in the district and implements looping in grades K5 thru 5th grade.
What is Looping and what does it have to do with me?
Looping is an educational practice in which a single graded class of children stays with their teacher for two years or grade levels. The children and the teacher remain together as the class is promoted. At the end of the second year, the children move on to a new teacher while the looping teacher returns to the lower grade level to receive a new group of students. At Harding, students and teachers in grade K5 will loop with grade one, grade two will loop with grade three, while students and teachers in grade four will loop with grade five on a two – year cycle.
