The Drama Club, is committed to making each student’s experience a positive one. It was created to increase a student’s self-esteem and confidence. The club’s goal is to increase language arts skills and develop some basic acting skills. The atmosphere is one where students have fun and look forward to expressing themselves in the performance arts. Through a co-operative effort of staff, parents, local community members and alumni students will gain additional leadership, time management and team building skills.
The Drama Club creates an atmosphere where those truly interested and committed to the performing arts can continue to explore these skills in a venue that will foster teamwork and pride.
Drama Club meets weekly for one hour after school with a focus on one spring performance.
Drama Club is open to students in Grades 4-8. Younger students will be invited to participate as extras as it gets closer to the performance date.
