Meet the Masters
Once each week our Art Assistants provide Art instruction to each class using the Meet the Masters Curriculum. Students are introduced to many varied artists through engaging lessons, and activities that have provide them with an understanding of different art forms and techniques. On the third week of the Artist cycle, the students use various mediums to create their own masterpieces, based on the artist's work.
Each year our 4th - 6th grade students can choose to participate in our School Musical. This 16 year tradition has become the highlight of the year. Students tryout for major roles, but all students who want to commit to the after-school rehearsals are included. Students who wish to keep their talents hidden off stage may also participate by being involved in the Stage Crew.
Our school choir, under the direction of teacher volunteers, meets every Friday after school to strengthen singing talents and learn to blend voices in a friendly setting. The choir performs 2 concerts each year and can occasionally be seen at local community events.
BTSALP- Music Classes
We are happy to be hosting a Music Instruction Teacher through the Beverly Taylor Sorenson Art Learning Program. Students receive Music instruction every other week during the regular school day. This is a great opportunity for children to learn through music and begin to develop their musical talents.
For students who love words, we offer a chance to join in producing a school newspaper under the direction of a teacher volunteer. These students meet briefly each week to discuss articles they are writing and editing, but most of the work is done on their own time.
Mountain Shadows TV
Every Friday, our students enjoy watching MSTV with updates on school activities, weather and sports. Star Students are announced and there are Class Spotlights. The news is anchored by our 4th grade students and feature articles are sometimes submitted by our Student Council that focus on our anti-bullying strategies and character education.
Beginning in January on Tuesday and Wednesday after school, several of our 4th - 6th grade students participate in a 3 on 3 basketball club. Students get a little instruction and have a lot of fun playing against other students in the school.
