On Wednesday, March 8th, 2017, the Middle School held its 2016-2017 Winter Convert & Art Show. Under the direction of Mrs. Christina Cleason, our students came together to put on an amazing musical performance! Our beginner band made their musical debut, sharing two short songs with our audience members, "A Mozart Melody" and "Aura Lee". Our advanced band shared one musical selection titled "More Cowbell". Our theme for this winter's chorus concert was focused on the idea of "Diversity and Acceptance". Our student body came together to celebrate the beauty in our differences and sings songs about overcoming the odds to fulfill your dreams. Our song selections included "Brave" by Sara Bareilles, "You'll Be Okay" by A Great Big World, "The Great Unknown" by Jukebox the Ghost, "Change Your Life" by Little Mix, and "Am I Wrong" by Nico & Vinz. This concert also featured a performance by two of our 6th grade classes, celebrating the culture, music, and customs from Spain. This performance was a part of our year long cultural project designed to help our classrooms become more culturally responsive, assist our students in becoming more accepting of others, and encourage parent and family presence in our school. Overall, our concert was a HUGE success! Our Art students displayed their prowess thanks to the great talents of our Art teacher, Ms. Brett. Students put on a wonderful art exhibition full of lively colors and artistic talent. The students showcased their knowledge of the 7 Elements of Art and the 7 Principles of Design using several techniques such as drawing, painting, print making, paper art, mixed media, and even raw nature. A school wide collaboration drawing that represents both diversity and unity was also on display. We are extremely proud of our student's accomplishments in art and music that are led by these amazing educators! Keep shining bright Atoms!
