Fine Arts
​Fine Art activities provide a great opportunity for students to make new friends and develop a sense of belonging. We hope they will learn many meaningful lessons that come from being involved in either an area of Music, Art, Band, or Choir. 

Fine Arts: Ms. Otey

Music: Dr. Erickson

Band and Choir:  Ms. Disney

Every child is welcome to enter band and/or choir in either grade 6, 7, or 8.  Band and Choir are year-long commitments.  It is expected that students attend as many rehearsals and concerts as possible - they are part of a team. 

Choir Class is held at 7:45am on Wednesdays. 

Band Class is held at 7:45am on Tuesday and Thursday.
