Hello Metropolitan Arts Academy,
Our bullying prevention and drug free month provided students with important learning opportunities to continue to strengthen our school community as a safe and inclusive learning environment for all students. We hosted visitors from around the country and our studeents did an outstanding job teaching them about competency based learning. We have been given partial scholarships for two arts related field trips that will allow 200 of our students to have awesome arts experiences. We will be celebrating our Veteran's this month with a special morning meeting on November 11th. All family members of students who are Veterans are welcome to attend.
Our team has been working hard this year to design and implement more project based learning. Each team will be implementing a large project where students all get the chance to learn and pply skills of building a high-quality project that is competency driven and includes arts integration.
This month we have students attending arts related field trips. Students from Ms. Fenimore, Ms. Maestas and Ms. Nelson's classes will be going to see "Goodnight Moon" at the Denver Center for Performing Arts, thanks to our partnership with the D.C.P.A. Students from Mr. Salazar, Ms. Shelofsky, Mr. Lynch and Ms. Logsdon's class will be attending Opera Colorado's production of "The Barber of Seville" at the Elle Caulkins Theatre at the D.C.P.A. It is very exciting for us to be able to provide a robust arts experience for our learners and we will continue to build partnerships to expand on these opportunities.
