Elementary students perform in a Christmas musical in which all K-5th grade students participate. Auditions are held for acting roles, speaking parts, and solos in early fall. Technology and media play a large role in making this an effective quality production in which the message of Christ comes through in a fun and friendly manner.
Centered around an established theme the all-school variety show is highly anticipated each year. Each elementary class performs a number; middle and high school students perform, officiate, or participate in a number of ways both on stage and behind the scenes. Auditions for individual and small groups are conducted as well, giving a wide variety of acts through which God-given talents, gifts, and potential are evident. Technology and media add to the excitement of this evening – a fun event in a more casual atmosphere.
Both middle school exploratory classes and high school electives include courses related to fine arts. Middle school exploratory classes include vocal music, instrumental music, drama, basic drawing, 2D and 3D Art, and calligraphy to name a few. High school electives in this area offer leveled art classes, drama, photography, digital illustration and graphic design as well as many others in various fields.
