St. Stanislaus Kostka Catholic Academy believes an arts education is an important part of a child’s learning. St. Stans music classes and performances have been led by the talented and energetic, Bozena Konkiel. In addition these regular music classes, St. Stans offers guitar club, dance classes, and choir.
And just in October, the Academy added a violin program for students from K-2nd grade, taught by Wieslawa Zarkowski, a concert violin player. The first lesson took place on October 6th.
We look forward to the student performances!
We are pleased to announce two supplemental programs beginning in our school this month.
Students in grades 4, 6 and 8 began a 15 week performing Arts School Residency Program today with an organization called Stages on the Sound. Two theater professionals will be coming every Wednesday during this period to work with the students. Grade 4 will focus on film making, grade 6 on play writing and producing while grade 8’s focus will be Shakespeare study and performance.
On October 20th, the 2nd and 5th graders will begin an 8 week session with representatives from the Audubon Society where they will learn about birds and their habitats in a program called “For the Birds.”
These are both wonderful learning opportunities for our students. Look for more pictures and stories as we start these wonderful programs!
