The PTA sponsors a variety of cultural arts events throughout the school year for the students to learn from and to enjoy.
Nationally known theater artist Mike Wiley was at our school as part of the Chatham Arts Council’s Artists-in-Schools Initiative. The Artists-in-Schools Initiative, in partnership with Chatham County Schools, has been bringing professional artists into Chatham schools to support math, science, language, and history curricula since the 2015–2016 school year. Read more about it here: https://www.chathamartscouncil.org/artists-in-schools/.
Mike Wiley wove literacy and history curriculum into his performance of 'Jackie Robinson: A Game Apart' and classroom workshops for the fifth grade.
2018/2019 Cultural Arts Events
On the Wings of the Swan
Through funding from the PTA, we are lucky to have Rosemarie Gulla visit our classrooms for her interactive story telling sessions! Ms. Gulla recently presented her own fairy tale, On the Wings of the Swan, to our Kindergarten classes.
Three glass hearts help to underscore the motivations and actions of characters. One heart is red and embodies the hero, the heroine. One heart is green with envy, cold and frosty, and belongs to the villain. One heart represents the cause and effect of having the green hearted character interact with the hero. It is half full and half empty. A once discouraged heart can be encouraged and filled again.
The first part of the story is told to the children and the second part of the story is acted out by some of the children. The story ends with a few pieces of the plot left dangling!
Check out these photos from Ms. Gulla's visit to Kindergarten.
