Students in all grade levels at Derry Village participate in Art, Music and Physical Education on a weekly basis. Children are provided opportunities to integrate Math, Science, and Language Arts with these specialized programs. Through active participation in these programs, students at Derry Village will gain a broader appreciation of humanities and their applications.
Through the Art curriculum students learn about the language of art, namely the elements of art and the principles of design. Art lessons are designed to reinforce the academic curriculum. Students are encouraged to use their artistic language and creativity to produce works of art that are personal statements that reflect an understanding of the material presented. In addition, students explore various cultures of the world through the arts and also learn about famous artists and their various styles of artistic expression.
Objectives found within the Music curriculum
strive to provide students with opportunities to experience and
appreciate music on many different levels. It is the goal of the Derry
Village music program to foster and develop a lifelong appreciation of
music in its many forms. Through the presentation of age-appropriate
lessons using aural, visual, and kinesthetic approaches on such
music-related topics as singing, music history, theory, movement, and
basic instruments, children will develop the skills required to
participate in middle and high school music activities. Students are required to wear sneakers during all Music classes.
The Physical Education program provides age appropriate activities for students to explore how their bodies move, and to develop and improve their gross motor skills. It also aims to help students develop individual, lifelong fitness and to promote cooperation and team work.
Because art, music and physical education are integral parts of the educational curriculum requiring self-discipline, listening skills, and participation, students are expected to perform with high standards of behavior, and effort and will be graded based in part upon these criteria. Students are required to wear sneakers during all Physical Education classes.
