On this last week of school, it is a blue week and truly the end of an era! 4th grade will have VAPA classes as scheduled, so please come focused and ready to show what you have learned all year. Like I always say – be brave, try hard, and have fun! The rest of the week the VAPA team will be publishing newsletters and virtual performances while upper graders partake in their end-of-year events. VAPA newsletters will be posted on our VAPA Teacher pages listed above to facilitate a family discussion on what your students learned about in music, dance, and media arts during the 4th quarter of this school year. Any virtual ‘practice performances’ showcased on these pages are examples of students making their best effort to grow in the arts. We are proud of all our RoboGriffin performers and producers! Please be sure to also check our teacher pages for any resources that can keep your students active throughout the summer break. Have a great summer!😎 🎶 🩰 🎥 🎉
