Five disciplines sharing a fascination with ideas, creativity and culture. As proof, there was Saturday night’s ”Graffiti Rock” concert at the Kitchen, a program devoted to breaking, a dance form that has flourished in recent years quite literally on the sidewalks of New York. Establishing community work societies and groups was one of the best things that our school could have done.
Whether your child is a freshman or senior, now is the time to visit with representatives from over 100 colleges, industries and military institutions to facilitate a deeper discussion of the many options after high school. The Mission of the Jessye Norman School of the Arts is to develop students to become creative, caring, visionary, responsible citizens through the transformative power of the arts. In the 2016 National Student Survey 91% of students within the School of Arts and Humanities said that staff are enthusiastic about what they are teaching. I hope you will find an opportunity to view a Wednesday afternoon match at your school before the season draws to a close.
This program is supported in part by the Greater Augusta Arts Council through appropriations from the City of Augusta, by the Georgia Council for the Arts, by a number of generous foundations, and by your contributions. To develop in young people the appreciation, discrimination, analysis, and participation skills necessary to become lifelong consumers of the arts. The visit was hosted by Lieutenant Danielle Redmond, a Navy pilot and former high school ROTC Cadet. Cristi serves the Grossmont District as a Senior Secretary at El Capitan High School.
For example, each year the PTSA encourages students to participate in Reflections, a nationwide PTA arts recognition and achievement program for students. It has been 25 years, this wonderful school came into existence, and I couldn’t be happier to know that it is growing leaps and bounds. Researchers in the School are engaged in activities as diverse as writing about the films of David Lynch and Pedro Almodovar, to curating cutting-edge arts events and analysing the music of Radiohead and Puccini.
Congratulations to Sara Hsu (Don Mitchell Ironman Scholarship), Joellen Sweeney (Performing Arts Scholarship), Matthew Marquette (Walter J. Cooney Business Scholarship) and Katherine Barger (Communications Scholarship). I hope you will find an opportunity to view a Wednesday afternoon match at your school before the season draws to a close.
