Several parent information nights have been scheduled for families of our current fifth grade students. The meetings will provide an opportunity for parents to learn more about the Creative Arts Academy, a unique educational experience offering students core coursework along with opportunities for exploration of various disciplines in the arts.
Intermediate level students will spend their mornings in arts learning experiences offered by a variety of community partners, including downtown museums and professional artists. Students will experience the arts from all disciplines as well as selecting a discipline that they wish to specialize in, including music, visual arts, dance, theater and communication arts (ex.: graphic design, video). The students will attend Sudlow Intermediate School in the afternoon for core curriculum offerings.
The information meetings will be held:
- Monday, April 7 at 6:30 p.m. at Monroe Elementary School, 1926 West Fourth Street, Davenport.
- Tuesday, April 8 at 6:30 p.m. at McKinley Elementary School, 1716 Kenwood Avenue, Davenport.
