BCS Elementary Fine & Performing Arts
Performing Arts & Music
At BCS, we foster a love for music in our students. Early music training has shown to develop areas of children's brains involved in linguistics, reasoning, and spatial intelligence...and that leads to greater success in school! Plus, older students who receive music instruction have significantly decreased incidence of substance abuse over the course of their lives.
Music is truly powerful!
In our performing arts program, students are introduced to the basic elements of music and drama while learning to sing and perform as a group. Students present their songs and skits to an audience of family and friends in evening performances that are a highlight of the year.
Fine Arts in the Elementary Classroom
All children have the ability and create and express themselves through the visual arts. Plus, creating and being creative are critical to whole-child development!
The fine arts are alive and well at BCS, where our classroom teachers lead students in exploring techniques of artistic creation, based on the styles of history's great artists. You won't have to look very far to see student-created artwork on our campus!
BCS Art Festival
Each year, we showcase extraordinary works of art created by our very own students in our in-house celebration of artists, the BCS Art Festival. Works are put on display in our gymnasium and adjudicated by judges...and the best of the best are awarded top honors!
ACSI Creative Writing Festival
Writing is yet another way of creating and expressing artistic gifts! In the classroom, students have the chance to hone their creative writing skills while learning important English skills. In the ACSI Creative Writing Festival, young writers' work is evaluated by judges, with superior works in each division and category advancing to the regional level. Select poems, essays, and short stories are even published!
Private Music Lessons
Music lessons are a strategic way to enhance your child’s education. Studies show that learning to read music and play an instrument or sing improves concentration, attention to detail, self-discipline and academic achievement.
For an additional fee, BCS offers weekly 30-minute private music lessons, which may take place before school, after school, or during recess. Our goal is to provide these lessons without interfering with classroom instruction. The lessons offered vary based on teacher availability, and limited slots are available. Pick up an application for private music lessons at the School Office today, or fill out a Request for Information to learn more!
