ELEMENTARY ART

Students in grades kindergarten through sixth grade participate monthly in our Art Masters program. This program, provided to CVCS students through Art Masters, delivers monthly lectures to children on topics from Ancient American, Native American, Pop, and African American Art to famous artists such as Joseph Raffael and Frank Lloyd Wright. Students then participate in classroom projects each month related to the lecture series, providing them exposure to a variety of art mediums.

 ELEMENTARY MUSIC

MIND - Students in Junior Kindergarten through 5th grade receive instruction and training on piano keyboards in two sessions per week, 30 minutes per session.  ST Math+Music works together to improve student's innate ability to think in patterns and pictures, which is then used in the software to teach math.  Music has a mathematical architecture of note values and repeating patterns.  Students are given a life-long gift of music training in learning to read sheet music and play the piano.

Drumline - Beginning in the 6th grade students graduate from the MIND music program and begin drumline training.  Drumline utilizes the core rhythm principles mastered in MIND music.  Students receive instruction using drum sticks and practice pads two sessions per week, 30 minutes per session.  Students have the option to continue drumline throughout junior high.  Drumline performs in December in the Elementary Christmas Program and in May at the school-wide Arts Showcase.

Laudate Children's Chorus - Our mission is to provide a high quality vocal music education experience while teaching students how their faith informs their understanding of music, worship, and performance.  Laudate is open to all 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students at CVCS and children in our larger community.  This class takes place in The Loft (room 206) after school on Wednesdays from 3:15pm - 4:15pm. 

Theatre Arts - The CVCS elementary theater arts program allows students to mature in confidence, learn about theatre, and experience acting in front of a live audience.

Junior Kindergarten and Kindergarten perform vocal Christmas selections at our annual Elementary Christmas Chapel.

1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades perform in December at the Elementary Christmas Program.

4th, 5th, and 6th grades perform a Broadway-style spring musical in March. This is a major production with professional lighting, sound, stage sets, and choreography. Each student experiences all of the facets of musical theatre.  Auditions are held in the fall.
