Another whirlwind week filled with art, music and performance!At Durfee, artists share their best work with the community at the Festival of the Arts- held Friday, May 19th from 5 to 7PM. Student work was adjudicated by local artists and 1st, 2nd and 3rd place ribbons were placed on the pieces chosen for their skill and ability to work within each category. Here are some images from the show..
At Kuss, this evening and throughout the weekend, we have The Lion King Musical being performed by the Kuss Theater Group. This amazing and resilient team of young actors and singers have had to cope with the sudden loss of their Theater teacher, Mr. Eric Spencer. Mr. Toby Monte, Ms. Nicole Laprise, Ms. Melissa Costa Doyle, Ms. Stephanie Bonalewicz and Mr. Roger Fournier have been instrumental in taking hold of the reins with a true "Show Must Go On" spirit. Thanks go out to them for leading this work and not letting our Kuss students down.
Morton's Annual Art and Fashion Show was a huge success- Some amazing up and coming artists showed off their work this week!
Last week, the district Orchestra and Band leaders orchestrated our annual Solo Fest, where instrumental students perform for an adjudicator (not their teacher) and receive individual and targeted feedback as to their technique. This is a great FRPS Festival, and students' faces light up when they receive their medals! We will be redesigning the process for next year, so stay tuned for the 2018 Solo Fest in the spring of 2018!
Next week, we have 5th Graders heading to the RI Vets to be a part of The Rhode Island Philharmonic's LINK UP Performance, with recorders in hand! Good luck to all 800+ students participating in this grant funded event! Teachers, make sure you have your final student count in for Monday so I can confirm buses!
Also, Itinerant Teachers are beginning to draft their schedules for next school year, so these will be shared with building principals as soon as next week for some!
