Resource Classes

“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.” ~Pablo Picasso

In Art class students will learn that art is a personal expression, it teaches about other times and places and connects to other areas of learning. Students will work with a variety of art materials, skills, techniques, and processes to create unique works of art. Some of the mediums that will be used are clay, paint, pastels, and fibers.

Student artwork is displayed throughout the building and in the Fine Arts Festival in April.

Each week all students kindergarten through fifth grade will come to the music room for 45 minutes. Throughout the year each grade level will perform at least one time on stage. We will learn about different composers, styles of music, along with playing a wide variety of instruments from African tubano drums to xylophones. Our goal is for students to have a positive and enriching learning experience that allows them to express themselves creatively and to instill a lifelong love for music.

The purpose of physical education is to help students acquire the knowledge, processes, skills, and confidence needed to engage in meaningful physical activity both in the present and for a lifetime. The practice of leading a physically active lifestyle will bring about personal enjoyment, challenge, satisfaction, and a health-enhancing level of personal fitness.

As a result of physical education instruction, the student will be able to do the following:
Demonstrate competence in motor skills and movement patterns needed to perform a variety of physical activities.
Apply movement principles and concepts to learning and developing motor skills and specialized movement forms.
Achieve and maintain a health-enhancing level of personal fitness.

Demonstrate responsible personal and social behaviors in physical activity settings.

Demonstrate a physically active lifestyle, including activity within and outside of the physical education setting.
