December 11-15, 2017

 

KINDERGARTEN, PRIMARY, INTERMEDIATE, UPPER DIVISION, & HIGH SCHOOL

          We all come together to create our annual winter musical!  Every student will appear onstage at the beautiful Piper Theater at the Mesa Arts Center on Monday, Dec. 18 at 9 AM.  The performance will conclude around 11;00.  Parents will take their students directly to the theater by 8:45 and then transport them back to school following the show.  The school will not be open prior to the show on that day for extended day. 

          In addition to developing a love for the arts and music abilities, students also learn public speaking, team skills, self-confidence, a sense of pride and achievement, practice makes perfect, and the joy that comes from giving a gift to others that you create yourself. Make sure to invite everyone you know.  We promise a wonderful morning to warm your heart, laugh out loud humor, and the opportunity to support your child.  We are very proud to present our show in the Piper Theater at the Mesa Arts Center.  This professional venue shows that we honor the work that our students have done and the importance of the arts in the development of the whole child.

 

DID YOU KNOW?

           Research has shown that students who have a full arts education also do better in math, science, and reading?  The brain does not learn in isolated classes, but develops pathways to connect all learning.  Learning whole notes, half notes, and quarter notes when reading music is not different than working with fractions in math.
