Arts & Music
Art is an integral part of Resurrection-St. Paul School! Students are exposed to a variety of art media. One, two and three dimensional art is explored, including working in clay, which is fired in the school's kiln. Third grade hosts a drama play! The students act, sing,choreograph dance steps and create the entire set and backdrop under the guidance of their teachers. Fourth grade students create a themed mural each year as part of our Artist in Residence program. Their work beautifies the walls of our school. At the end of the year the entire school comes together for a "Night of Excellence!" A grand celebration including all of our students finest achievements. All forms of art are displayed in the halls and gym. There are performances in song, dance, poetry reading, instrumentals and dramatic acts for everyone to enjoy. A variety of projects are on display; STEM, Religion and Social Studies to name a few. There are also interactive actives in the arts, STEM challenges and Math club actives. Every student in the school is represented and celebrated!
*Art is still an important part of our curriculum, however, during the COVID pandemic, adjustments have had to be made including postponing our Artist is Residence program.
In third grade, students will participate in all aspects of a stage performance. Whether a performer, backdrop artist, or technical crew member, all students are involved and engaged in the play. Students hold 3 showings, 2 at school for their classmates, and 1 in the evening for the public (and parents). Many classes also use "reader theater" to enhance the English Language Arts curriculum.
* We will still have our drama production this year, but adjustments will be made to follow COVID precaution guidelines.
Students in music class have exposure to several instruments including recorders, xylophones, and hand bells. In addition to music class, we have a student choir and an award winning instrumental band program. The liturgical music at most of our school masses is always lead by students.
*During the COVID pandemic, adjustments have been made to our music program to keep everyone safe. Music is still part of our curriculum, however, singing and the sharing of instruments is not taking place.
