Dear Deans Mill Families,
It is hard to believe that Spring is upon us! This is always
an exciting time at the elementary level.
The amount of growth we have seen in students continues to amaze us each
day. Students have become creative
thinkers, inquisitive learners, and thoughtful contributors to the school
An important part of the elementary experience is exposure to the arts! The arts entail
many different elements such as visual arts, theatrical arts, and musical
arts. Throughout the school year
students take part in art class and music class but also have experiences in
the arts within their core academic curriculum.
Students participate in readers’ theater as part of our reading program
and projects are used to support instruction in all areas. Students also share a variety of performances
at community gatherings.
In March, kindergarten students performed musical selections
for their families during their Spring Concert. It was a wonderful performance and a great
first experience for our kindergarteners to be up on stage.
We are very excited to provide all other students an opportunity to demonstrate their love of the arts in our first annual Celebration of the Arts evening on Thursday, April 30th in and around the auditorium at Stonington High School. Students in grades 1 - 4 will present Spring concerts as well as have their artwork on display. The students have been working hard this year in music and art classes and are excited to share their talents with you. Students are encouraged to dress nicely for the concert and art show.
The art show will be held from 5:00 - 8:00 PM in the rooms surrounding the Stonington High School auditorium.
The concerts will take place in the Stonington High School Auditorium.
Grade 1 5:30 - 6:00 PM
Grade 2 6:15 - 6:45 PM
Grade 3 7:00 - 7:30 PM
Grade 4 7:45 - 8:15 PM
We look forward to seeing you at our Celebration of
the Arts on Thursday, April 30, 2015.
Jenn & Allison
