Our classes are taught by our trained drama teacher who has been involved in drama performances for decades and includes instruction in drama, acting and singing. Drama classes not only put a focus on personal growth, but also engage in team-building skills, creative writing and learning to stay engaged while developing listening skills. Students are also taught how the various skills, games, and scripts support and develop their Christian faith.
Kindergarten through sixth grade have many opportunities in music classes to explore the innate musical language of the Creator in whose image they were made. Each child is encouraged to find their own voice while making music in community with others. Through vocal exploration and instrumental experimentation, movement, storytelling and improvisation, students experience the sounds of music first, then the symbols. Music time is active and hands-on, including folk dances and games, playing xylophones, drums and rhythm instruments, keyboards, Boomwhackers, ukuleles, recorders and guitar. Singing and playing together in an ensemble nurtures a respectful community and teamwork, problem-solving and an appreciation for diversity and joyful sharing of one's own gifts.
Annual CHRISTMAS concert
Students and parents alike look forward to the Annual Christmas Concert in early December. Our kindergarten through 5th grade students celebrate the birth of Christ with music, drama and recitation. This is a wonderful event for the whole family as we gather to sing about our Savior and showcase the students as they celebrate the true "reason for the season."
At our elementary and middle school, we believe that all students are gifted in their various ways and our arts department provides opportunities to develop and showcase artistic expression. Our program introduces students to fun and engaging concepts of design, color theory, art history, contemporary influences, mixed media, and so much more. Students participate in various aspects of visual arts with grade-based projects, the school wide post-it note art show, and investigating the monthly mystery artist. Through these hands-on lessons and projects, their minds are stretched, their skills are developed, and their creativity grows. We recognize that God uniquely gifts us with specific talents and artistic expression as a way to worship Him.
Spring Student SHOWCASE & Art Show
Our Art Showcase is a yearly highlight as our elementary and middle school gym is transformed into an art gallery to celebrate and showcase the gifts and talents of our students in the areas of drawing, sketching, painting, sculpting, and so much more. Parents and friends are invited to come and enjoy this exclusive event.
