November 14, 2022. Updates from the Academic Arts team
A Look Ahead: This coming week will we will create our own class SOAR expectations and movement to go with each one.
Highlights from Last Week: Getting to meet each new class and new dance students. We were able to get started on our SOAR dance expectations and even dance a little :)
Reminders: Please remember if your child has dance to wear clothing that is great for moving while still keeping in mind the NCCAE dress code. As well as shoes that can easily come on and off.
Can't wait to see how this new group of students will grow in dance class! Mrs. Majewski
Welcome to Drama Class Second Quarter with Mx. Flannery at NCCAE!

- 5th Grade, 4th Grade, and 3rd Grade will discover that each line and space on a music staff has a name and a purpose! By the end of the week we will be able to play notes on classroom instruments to a song!
- 2nd Grade and 1st Grade will say "Hello!" to voice types, and learn how the voice can be an instrument!
- Kindergarten will learn about how a steady beat can be fast or slow, and how that changes how music can sound!
Highlights from Last Week:
- Last Week our 2nd Grade music students performed a song for Veteran's Day, and even did some fun dance moves to go along with it! Check out the video below! Great job Ms. Green's 2nd Grade Class!
Reminders: Continue to encourage students to work towards classroom goals and rewards.
A Look Ahead: building patterns, photographing and drawing landscapes, conceptual art
Highlights from Last Week: abstract photography, collage with watercolor, organic shapes
Reminders: Art can play many roles in a child's life. If your student wants to develop their talents more fully than our class time allows, please feel free to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out what additional activities might be helpful.
