Arts House Update

The Arts are growing at GPA! We have expanded the courses offered at both the middle school and high school levels. We have opened four new areas of the Arts: Music, Dance, Culinary, Textiles & Fashion, and expanded Drama and the Visual Arts.

New for 2005-2006:

High School: Beginning Guitar

Dance Class

Drawing & Painting Studio and 3-Dimensional Art

Stagecraft

Consumer Foods Class

Fibers, Fabric & Fashion

Professional Culinary Class partnership with Mira Costa

Middle School: 7th Grade Art Appreciation

8th Grade Beginning Voice, Beginning Guitar

8th Grade – 2 Dance Classes

8th Grade – Mixed Media Art

8th Grade – Semester-length Drama classes

Changes for 2005-2006:

6th grade students take Visual Art and Drama as part of their Tech/Arts 6-week rotation. 7th grade students take Visual Art and Music as part of their Tech/Arts 6-week rotation. 8th grade students have a choice of electives in the Visual and Performing Arts. These are semester or year-long classes instead of 6-week rotations. High school students have a choice of elective classes to select from instead of a specific Arts class required for a particular grade level. The number of sections of Arts classes including New Media I – Graphic Design/New Media II /Photography, and Drama I have increased. These have been exciting and challenging times as we have worked to create classes, schedule students, and hire new teachers. We are working with the Artists in Residence program to bring local artists into the classroom. We will be working to expand our program to include more instrumental music, art classes, leveled dance classes, and performance groups. We will be working with local artists and school volunteers to showcase the talent of local arts, and student artists and performers at the Annual Celebration of the Arts in May, 2006.~Kathy Hamamoto, Arts House Leader

“The RITZ”

“The RITZ (the library) has had an already exciting year. Students are coming into the RITZ to browse the shelves, check out books and use the computers. In the morning some students are playing board games, doing their homework and reading! Students who had overdue books and fines have been taking care of them.

What are new and exciting are the new resources we have for those students in the IB (International Baccalaureate) program. It is an IB library from grades 6-12 with resources and literature books to back up this international program. Parents are encouraged to explore the selection. There are books to help with the SAT prep and college selection as well.

The RITZ has completed orientation with most of the middle school students and many high school students. It is really a treat as students connect with reading and the resources available. Ask your student about the rules they came up with during their orientation in the library.

In the works also is training for library aides to make it a student run-student supported library.

For a little background information: The library has over 15,000 books, tapes, movies. More than 3,000 of those were added brand new last year. At the current time, books on tape and supporting videos are being added to complement the curriculum and to serve the needs of those students who learn best with audio or visually. “

Thanks for all your support,
