Keeping Your Child Healthy and In School
Indiana Arts Commission Brings Shakespeare to GCCS Elementary Students
Through an Indiana Arts Commission Regional Initiative Grant secured by Greater Clark County Schools, Kentucky Shakespeare brought the Bard’s comedy Midsummer Night’s Dream to life for intermediate students at Pleasant Ridge Elementary,Riverside Elementary, and Spring Hill Elementary. Performed by a two-person team, the condensed, interactive play allowed the children to gain both experience and confidence in working with higher level vocabulary, plots, and themes in preparation for middle school and beyond. Identified intermediate high ability students then worked as a group with the Kentucky Shakespeare professionals in a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) workshop where students applied math to the art of set design. College Board research points to a 60+ point gain on the SAT for students who participate in drama. Thank you Indiana Arts Commission!
Wilson Elementary Family Literacy/Science Night
Wilson Elementary hosted their Family Literacy/Science Night and more than 350 students and parents attended! Students made predictions about objects that would sink or float, talked about solids/liquids/gasses with our root beer floats, created our own slime using different materials, discovered friction with balloons, the science behind paper airplanes, and used our 5 senses to test a hypothesis! It was such a fun night for Wilson Wildcat families!
