Our winter show is fast approaching! Ms. White and I have collaborated to bring you a performance of dance and song presented by Pre-K through 4th grade students.
The fine arts team continues to receive offers for wonderful field trip opportunities. This year, 3rd and 5th grade got to see Hubbard Street Dance for free. 6th, 7th, and 8th grade are seeing the symphony for free. 4th grade is receiving a free field trip to the Chicago History Museum to study modern design of Chicago. Finally, 50 Dever students, parents, and staff are going to see the Nutcracker for free. We are always working hard to find and take advantage of these opportunities! Hopefully, there will be more to come.
