–       2. Each class will perform sometime during the CASTA Day.

–       3. Each student and teacher wears their CASTA Tie Dye t shirt!

CASTA performances

Showtime is here!

Tuesday November 21st at 8:30 in the theater all 5th grade classes will present.

We are Global Performers!

In collaboration with the 5th grade unit Global Citizenship, the performing arts classes have been traveling the world and discussing how understanding the arts can make us better global citizens.

Come enjoy as we travel to England, Taiwan, Ecuador, Greece, Georgia Sea Islands, and Zimbabwe. Listen as classes combine improvisation and original compositions with traditional folk songs. 3 part choral and spoken pieces will have you humming along and 2 very different dances with give you some extra lift to get your feet moving for the rest of the day.

Mark your calendars for upcoming performance.

Recorder time

If you are a returning ISB student it is time to find your recorder. If you left it at school last year we will get them organized next PA Class.

If you took it home—it is time to find it and bring it back to school.  Can’t find it.  50 RMB will get you a new one.

If you are a new ISB students I will give you what you need.
