Today has been an exciting day for our third through fifth grade scholars! Our partners from ArtsNow are on campus working with our teachers sharing model lessons using theater.
SCA is now a partner school with ArtsNow, a non-profit organization that works with schools to implement and support authentic arts integration school-wide.
Carefully structured arts-based learning environments help scholars excel academically, socially, and artistically by demonstrating deeper engagement in subject matter, enhanced social awareness, and improved retention of content.
ArtsNow works to build the confidence and skills of educators through professional development and resources to encourage integration of the arts across all grades and content areas.
We believe that our scholars will benefit from being exposed to the arts each and every day. Our teachers have already participated in one day of intensive training and, like the training today, will continue to work with ArtsNow to implement art-based learning across the curriculum.
