Arts

Visual and performing arts

Visual art and theater art activities are included as part of regular classroom activities. All students participate in our elementary music and art program.

We believe that:

  • our students should have basic knowledge, skills and appreciation of the fine arts.
  • a quality fine arts education program will enable students to develop self-esteem, self-discipline, self motivation and cooperation necessary for success in life.

Art club

The Art Club is an after school activity that provides materials, instruction and support for those students who are seeking a creative outlet in addition to their one art class every week. Art Club offers visual art experiences for both the serious art student, as well as the student who just wants to enjoy and appreciate art. It is a place for practicing artists to hone in on their skills, develop their techniques and portfolios, and collaborate with other artists like themselves. Students can apply to be a part of the art club twice a year: Aug and Jan. Admission decisions are made based on overall behavior and conduct in both their general education classroom and in art class. We meet on Tuesdays from 3:20p.m.-3:50p.m.

We are always accepting donations of the following:

  • Egg Cartons
  • Baby Wipes
  • Clorox Wipes
  • Toilet paper or paper towel rolls

Music

In music at Spring Creek Elementary, we spend our time together building relationships with each other and with the world around us through musical experiences. Within these experiences, students also learn to look within themselves to learn to be the bet they can be and develop habits that help them to become leaders.  

General music

All students in grades PreK-5th grade will receive instruction in music 45 minutes per week (PreK 30 minutes per week). Music instruction at Spring Creek follows the philosophies found in the Orff Schulwerk approach. Learning happens in a non-competitive atmosphere where every child can participate and contribute according to ability. Students will experience and learn music in a variety of ways including spoken word, singing, moving and play instruments. 

Recorders

Students in 3rd, 4th and 5th grade will need to purchase a recorder for music class. 

Honor choir ensembles

Scorpion Sound Orff ensemble

Scorpion Sound is an auditioned group of 3rd-5th grade students.
