Principal's Message

March Update

Excerpted from our March Newsletter​.
​The Importance of the Arts
". . . the arts have been an inseparable part of the human journey; indeed, we depend on the arts to carry us toward the fullness of our humanity. We value them for themselves, and because we do, we believe knowing and practicing them is fundamental to the healthy development of our children's minds and spirits. That is why, in any civilization - ours included - the arts are inseparable from the very meaning of the term 'education.' We know from long experience that no one can claim to be truly educated who lacks basic knowledge and skills in the arts."
–National Standards for Arts Education
The arts are a crucial piece of the curriculum, often taught both as standalone subjects as well as being embedded in all of the other subject areas, such as language arts, science, and social studies. Art gives our students an opportunity to explore the curriculum in different ways, as well as providing an alternate way to demonstrate learning. The arts can have many different forms, including but not limited to things like painting, dancing, sculptures, music, and drama. The arts provide our students an opportunity to express creativity, passion, or even emotion.
The students of Ethel M Johnson School have an amazing opportunity coming up in the month of March. Quest Theatre, a group that works with students in schools, will be working with the students of EMJ from March 5-9. Each class will have multiple opportunities over the course of the week to work with this theatre group, creating, writing, and developing a theatrical performance. 
Students will spend the first four days of this residency working directly with artitsts and classmates to come up with a message that they feel strongly about, creating a performance that will be presented in front of the school on Friday morning. This performance is truly student-generated, created, and performed. We will be having two performances on Friday, March 9 to display our learning. Half the school will perform at 9:15 am and the other half at 11:00 am (classroom teachers will be providing further information next week about when they will be performing). We hope you are able to come and join us! Thank you to the Alberta Foundation of the Arts Grant Program for helping us make this happen, as well as the support of our School Council.
The benefits of arts exposure and experiences cannot be over stated. I am looking forward to seeing what kind of amazing endeavors our students will be undertaking in the upcoming months.
Chris RaduPrincipal, Ethel M Johnson School​
