Featured Artist of the Month

The Artist of the Month for December is Pyotr Tchaikovsky, a Russian composer best known for writing the score for the Nutcracker, as well as the 1812 Overture and Piano Concerto No. 1. We will learn about Tchaikovsky during the month of December and on the 17th during our arts integration day!

December Theme: Be a part of the solution as an Act of Gratitude

This month WESA students will learn how being grateful is being a part of the solution. Students will discuss how gratitude does not require perfect circumstances or for things to go our way. Rather, gratitude is an attitude that acknowledges that there are many things to be thankful for. Having an attitude of gratitude is being a part of the solution because it brings positivity to every situation.
