Art Instruction, directed by Mrs. B.J. Russell, is available to all students at PCS through weekly classes up to the eighth grade and as one of the clubs offered during the high school Activities Period. Art students’ work is displayed at an annual art show, usually held in conjunction with our spring musical. Elementary artwork is also displayed outside of the classroom and on bulletin boards. Students’ artwork has also been entered in ACSI and regional art contests.
Music and Chorus
Music and Chorus, directed by Mrs. Debbe Picerno, is available to all students and meet in our music/chorus room every week. All students, starting with PreK, learn the basics of and appreciation for music. Beginning in the fifth grade, students can select to join one of three accomplished choruses: the elementary chorus (fifth and sixth grades), middle school chorus (seventh and eighth grades) and high school chorus (ninth through twelfth grades). The choirs hold annual Christmas and Spring concerts each year, and also sing at the school’s annual Veteran’s Day program. Additionally, students have the opportunity to participate in small vocal ensembles and a barbershop ensemble.
