I'm a huge fan of whole child education and learning through creativity. PFES Academy is fortunate to have 2 very talented friends that visit our classroom to provide music and art education.
Our music class began on July 10th. It is held every other Monday from about 2:15 PM to 2:45 PM. Full-time academy students attend at no extra charge. Part-time students attend at an affordable rate of $30 per month.
This week, the students worked on self-regulation, call and response, rhythm, and patterns using Boom Chicka Boom. Our music teacher, Daysha Clark, is an artist at heart. Her day job is visual art (photography, graphics, etc...) but she lends her musical gifts to PFES Academy.
Our twice monthly art classes will begin in September, based on enrollment. Full-time academy students pay a reduced rate of $25 per month. Part-time students participate at an affordable rate of $40 per month.
Our art teacher, Jill Eulo, has a background in child development and uses art as a medium for personal growth, recreation, and aesthetic joy.
