Welcome to the Des Moines Public Schools, Fine Arts Page
I am so excited to begin the 2014/2015 school year. Already I have had the chance to meet some amazing new teacher and speak with some returning teachers who have been working diligently to prepare their rooms all summer long.
This year, this site will be streamlined to include more information on SRG and the new arts standards located at the National Arts Standards Website.
Furthermore, look for new sites dedicated to the Visual Arts and the Turn Around Arts Initiative.
I look forward to working with you all this year!
The New Arts Standards Are Here!
Thew new much anticipated National Arts Standards were released this summer. In the coming months, we will be taking time to look through the meaning of each of these and what it means to our students and how we can continue to develop their skills within SRG.
We are dedicated to making sure our students have a rigorous, engaging, and powerful arts rich experience throughout their schooling. Using the new standards we will develop a classroom experience that will truly develop the whole child.
