trips, guest speakers, professional development and arts activities from the Scientific

the support of Janus, our partnership with the SCFD, and on-site event
programming like the Art Auction (http://www.cherryartsauction.org/) the Cherry Creek Arts Festival was able to present the Mobile Art Gallery
II to our students and community members. The Mobile Art Gallery consists of
original works of art from exhibiting artists. The art was on display for the community to enjoy on
Wednesday, March 20th.
to the Mobile Art Gallery, part of this grant included a partnership with our
neighboring elementary school, Belleview Elementary.
is very grateful for the partnership with Campus on this grant. They have
enjoyed so many presentations, but one of their all-time favorites was the
Muscle and Skeletal Hip Hop class presented by the DCPA.
Campus have enjoyed a variety of activities.
Some of our students have experienced a two day workshop with a script
writer from the Denver Center of Performing Arts. While the students reflected on their
experience they said they wouldn’t have changed a thing! Additionally, the 7th
grade Theatre Arts classes enjoyed a day with a professional actor teaching
them how to use subtext!
also benefited with
from the Wildlife Experience, the Colorado Bird Observatory, and a
by Wild Wings, a raptor rehabilitation program. Students will also enjoy a
multicultural drum circle at the end of March. In April, students will be
involved with an interactive immigrant experience presented by actors from the
Denver Center for the Performing Arts.
with the students benefiting from this grant, the teachers have as well! The teachers at Campus will have the
opportunity to attend a Film Literacy night, free of charge, at the Denver Film
Society. This professional development will help teachers address the new
English Language Arts Common Core Standards.
the grant has allowed teachers a unique way to provide new learning experiences
for their students! Each activity directly relates to the new common core. The teachers
have been thrilled with Campus' involvement with the grant. They have
appreciated the communication and resources made available, some of which we
didn't even know existed.
