Thanks to financial contributions by TPES families, the Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) program is fully funded by the Foundation for all grades and takes VAPA to the next level. This program is taught by certificated and qualified art, music, dance, and theater teachers that are dedicated to awakening the artist in every student at TPES.
In the visual art program our students will learn about different periods in art history, try different techniques and mediums, and gain confidence in their artistic potentials. Kids will be encouraged to express themselves through the various art projects and styles they will learn.
Performing arts means: lights, camera, action! As part of this program, students will have the opportunity to participate in music, theater, and/or dance classes taught by experienced performing arts teachers.
Another important benefit of this program is that classroom teachers gain grade-level collaboration time called Professional Learning Communities (PLC) while students rotate through VAPA enrichment classes. Collaboration time enables TPES to have high quality classroom experiences that are consistent and data-led across grade-levels.
The schedule will be shared on the TPES calendar and through classroom teachers.
