Creative Arts and Sciences is a city-mandated enrichment program that brings three curriculum and standards-based arts and sciences programs to every grade. It accounts for one third of the PTO’s budget. This year, Kindergarteners will have an in-classroom lesson from a Drumlin Farm educator complete with live chickens, rabbits and snakes. A scientist from the Boston Museum of Science will present a hands-on lights and laser show to the third graders. Fifth graders will study the art of verse throughout the fall semester with their own poet-in-residence. Wingmasters will pay a visit with their magnificent wild birds of prey. A professional mural artist, David Ficter, will lead second through fifth graders in making a large mural installation for the outdoor classroom.
