Students in Kindergarten - Grade 8 take art and music classes weekly. They participate in school wide celebrations of the arts, such as the Christmas Pageant, Spring Concert and Art Fair.
Optional programs are available that further expose students to the arts. Students in Grades 3-8 may participate in a weekly Band class, and receive instruction in musical instruments that include flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, percussion, and bells. In addition, there is a weekly Strings program for students in Preschool - Grade 8. Students may participate in band or strings, but not both.
Students in Grade 5-8 also participate in the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum Student Docent Program. The program is designed to equip students with the skills needed to discover and connect with contemporary art. The Museum teaches small groups of students to lead discussions about contemporary art with their classmates. Led through the exhibition by their peers, students on the tour are more likely to make connections between the work on display and their own experiences.
