Annual Events & Traditions
Art in the Forest
Art in the Forest is a celebration of Pre-K through 5th grade art. Art is displayed throughout the school and features the students' inspiration and interpretation of the artist’s work to complete their very own work of art. The art introduced and studied ranges from ancient classical art to contemporary art, focusing on the artists and their techniques.
Living History Museum
The Living History Museum is a museum hosted by 5th grade for the whole school to enjoy. Fifth grade students choose someone in history that made an impact in society and prepare a special presentation. During this presentation all 5th grade students dress up as the person they chose to present on and present as if they were that person. The entire school and 5th grade parents are invited to walk through the Living History Museum and enjoy the live presentations.
