Visual & Performing Arts Information

2018-2019

Mercer County Elementary School offers weekly courses in the visual and performing arts.  Music and Art are taught 50 minutes per week as part of a 5-day rotation of "specials" or "enrichment" classes. Dance units are included in the Health & PE class. Students are given multiple opportunities to display their talents.  In November each year, K-2 students have an art show as part of the Art & PE Showcase.  First and second graders perform a dance and fitness routine on the same evening.  In December each year, K-2 students participate in a musical performance as part of the Reading Wonderland night. Our school also participates in the Conservation Art Poster contest and the Art to Remember program. We have "dance parties" as part of our PBIS reward program.
