Sophie Savedra, Auxvasse Elementary student, rides a horse Tuesday outside the school during her exploratory class which covers the Old West. The “cowboy class” at Auxvasse Elementary’s summer school has been offered to students for about the past seven years, and is one of many exploratory classes children can sign up for. Until 1 p.m., students have their core classes of reading, math, science and social studies and then attend exploratory classes for the remaining of the day. Other exploratory classes include subjects of lifetime sports, dancing, crafts and books that have been made into films.
