Fine Arts Programs

Thanks to the St. Petronille Parent Organization, Fine Arts performances are offered to students in grades K-8 throughout the year. These programs are designed to enhance the school arts curriculum. The programs are varied in content and performed by outside companies. In the past, programs have included Mad Science, Chinese Dancers, and theater performances.

Another arts program sponsored by our Parent Organization is "Art in the Classroom".  This program is for all grades and highlights a famous piece of art.  Each month, parents come into the classrooms to provide an overview on a given piece of art, as well as, guide the students through an activity that incorporates either the style or the theme of the discussed piece.

In addition, St. Petronille puts on a school musical or play production. Students audition to participate in this school wide event.  Practices for the production take place after school, as well as on the weekend.   A typical performance schedule includes 1 school wide performance followed by performances over 2 weekends.
