March 26-30, 2012
In the past, we have had an "Arts Alive!" night every other year. This year, we decided to turn that one night into a week of celebrating the arts.
The University of North Carolina Historical Speakers came to perform stories for our fifth grade students.
The Trask Traveling Theatre Group from Trask Middle School came to perform funny versions of classic fairy tales for our entire school.
Our Fifth Grade AIG Language Arts Students performed storytelling for the second graders one morning.
Although this was not purposely scheduled for this week, the Roland Grise Middle School Orchestra came to perform for our fifth graders, and it was a perfect fit! The orchestra taught the fifth graders about the string instruments and how to sign up for orchestra in middle school.
The Ukulele Academy came to perform for all of our students. They played authentic Hawaiian music and even tied in some other genres as well.
