Performances and materials in the areas of dance, song, storytelling, and art are provided to our students to enrich and build on the strong academic quality of our instructional programs.

Every year our Middle School enters regional and national writing competitions.
Every year students in Grades Six through Eight display their Science Projects, along with Bridge Projects from the Fifth Graders. Students are judged and projects receiving medals go on to the Regional Science Fair.
