Art in action!
Posted Wednesday, October 5, 2016
It was an opportunity to transform important lessons into art at the Loveland Early Childhood Center (LECC) for some creative learning the week of September 26. First, kindergarten and preschool students got a chance to see The Children's Theater on Tour perform Town Mouse and City Mouse Monday, Sept. 26. The play featured Town Mouse and Country Mouse exploring each other’s lives to decide once and for all if the grass is truly greener on the other side!
“Our students enjoyed this show thanks to the tremendous support of our PTA for funding this wonderful program,” said LECC Principal Kyle Bush. “We really appreciate the continued strong parent partnership that generates opportunities for outside agencies such as The Children’s Theater on Tour to interact with our students. This was an enriching experience for all involved.”
Then, Wednesday, Sept. 28, LECC first-grade students watched a performance by the National Theater for Children (sponsored by Duke Energy) called the Conservation Caper.
“This was an opportunity to learn about conserving energy in connection with our science unit on energy,” said Bush. “We always welcome working with outside partners in education to help us think outside of the box when delivering these important lessons, and we appreciate Duke Energy for sponsoring this event.”
