Arts Express Week:
Arts Express Week is held each spring, typically in May. During the week, an artist in residence comes in to the school to work with students to develop a program to present to the entire student body. The fourth grade class has been the focus of a performance at the end of each Arts Express Week with the lower grades contributing actively to the event. Furthermore, all students will have the opportunity to participate in various workshops and activities which relate to the chosen theme of the week. Past themes have included dance, music, theatre, graphic arts, and circus. This annual event usually attracts a large team of volunteers and there are opportunities for everyone who would like to be involved. Co-Chairs and their teams will coordinate the 4th grade program, organize student workshops and activities for the week, and work together to choose and contract with an artist for the following year.
