Our Visual And Performing Arts program, 100% funded by your PTO, provides art classes and dance classes to our students. During the school year, students receive several weeks of art instruction. Later, towards the end of the school year, the artwork is displayed at one of our two Museum Nights (held the same night as Open House Night). Additionally, students receive several weeks of dance instruction, that leads up to a very special kid-run VAPA performance. Students run the event, including sound, lights, and announcements and classes are the performers. Because our school is year-round and we have so many classes, the VAPA performances are grouped into  5 or 6 different nights spread-out during the school year. Below are some pictures of past VAPA performances, along with photos from  Museum Night and instruction in the classrooms.
