In art class, we learn about contour drawing, shading, texture, color, and design. We will create guided drawings, watercolor, a color wheel, reverse shading, texture shading, texture with ink, chalk pastels and one-point perspectives. Students always have the opportunity to make additional art projects in the given elective time.
Teachers: Mr. Binder
There are two levels that students can be enrolled, based upon their skill level. In Mr. Binder’s Concert Band, students will be introduced to their instruments, learn basic music reading skills, and how to play in a group. In Mr. Bringedahl’s Symphonic Band, students will play advanced rhythms and technically challenging music.
Teacher: Mrs. Boulais
In Chorus, the emphasis is on learning to sing properly, understanding music and performing with one’s voice. We meet once a week and sing exercises to help develop the voice, but spend most of our time singing folk songs of America. The songs progress through our heritage from movies and musicals to popular songs.
All Students participate, 2-3 times a week -- Teacher: Mr. Meyer
Students move their bodies, focus on personal improvement, and have fun! Students will explore various sports and lifetime activities, and physical exercises to improve their athletic skill set and overall fitness level. Team building, sportsmanship, and goal setting are key components of the class and are always the focal point of each lesson.
