Each year, the students in grades five through eight are invited to participate in the school's spring musical. Students are given the opportunity to express their artistic sides both on stage and behind the curtains! In addition to the fun that always comes along with doing live theater, students also learn responsibility and how to work as and depend on other members of a team. Students are also encouraged to practice patience, empathy, and to give support to students of different grade levels. Being part of the spring musical fosters community-building and builds self-confidence! Also, while we seek to teach various aspects of theater, we also utilize the STEM design process in the construction of our sets!
