Cab Wins Scholastic Awards!

Cab Wins Big!

The Regional Scholastic Art and Writing Awards is a student art contest sponsored by Delaware State University in affiliation with the Alliance for Young Artists and Writers.

…to give those high school students who demonstrate superior talent and achievement in things of the spirit and of the mind at least a fraction of the honors and rewards accorded to their athletic classmates for demonstrating their bodily skills.” –Maurice R. Robinson, Founder

Since 1923, the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards have recognized the vision, ingenuity, and talent of our nation’s youth, and provided opportunities for creative teens to be celebrated. Each year, increasing numbers of teens participate in the program, and become a part of our community—young artists and writers, filmmakers and photographers, poets and sculptors, video game artists and science fiction writers, along with countless educators who support and encourage the creative process.

Student can enter individual pieces, and seniors can enter an 8-piece thematic portfolio. 

Students who win Gold or Silver Key are eligible for many regional and national scholarships.

Regional Gold and Silver Key winners’ artworks will be on display at the Art Center Gallery at Delaware State University from January 17 through February 4.  There will be a closing reception 9-10:30am, and awards ceremony 11-12:30pm on Saturday February 4.

We, the Communication Arts and Visual Arts Departments are thrilled with the number of students who were recognized this year…the list is long!  The winners are sorted by award won, grade level and then alphabetically.  We begin with the 8-piece portfolio winners.

The writing awards will be announced later this month.

Some of the work that was awarded is featured here. Below the images are the winners names.

Cab Senior Plays at the Biden Christmas Party

Mr. Biden personally thanked him!

On Sunday December 11th, Senior Pyerce Oates played in front of a crowd of invited State Officials, office personnel, family and friends of the Biden’s.. It was a great honor to play at such a prestigious occasion. Pyerce has been playing at different events for years, however this was a highlight of an already early career.

Pyerce Oates, a senior at Cab Calloway School of The Arts. Through his elementary, middle school and high school years he has mainly played the piano as a soloist, accompanist and band member. But, also plays more than 24 other musical instruments.  Pyerce has developed his own piano styles through several genres of music, i.e. classical, jazz, and gospel. His community musical opportunities have come due to his  musical diversity and skills, humbleness, and for being an all around great young man. Tonight at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts, Pyerce will be playing a solo piece, “The Lord’s Prayer” in from of a sold out crowd during the “A Soulful Christmas” program!

Cab Business Students Participate in Hour of Code

a global movement reaching tens of millions of students in 180+ countries

On Monday and Tuesday, December 5th and 6th, students in Mr. Georgsson’s Eighth Grade Business Education classroom took part in what has been dubbed “the largest educational event in history”.

Hour of Code is an initiative to get students to spend an hour of time learning to program, as part of national CS Education Week (December 5-9, 2016).  The Hour of Code is a global movement reaching tens of millions of students in 180+ countries through a one-hour introduction to computer science and computer programming.

The hour of code activity in Mr. Georgsson’s classroom exposed students to programming concepts via a visual programming language called Blockly.  Blockly uses blocks that link together to make writing code easier, and can generate JavaScript, Python, PHP or Dartcode.

Although pensive at first, once students delved into the “Play Lab” activity they found the lesson both illuminating and fun.  Each student picked their own theme to explore and, through a series of steps, were exposed to individual programming concepts.  Each step would build upon the previous one until students had the knowledge necessary to complete either a compelling story or fun, playable game.  The final stage involved students testing whether their programs were up to snuff, i.e. they played their games or reviewed their story.

At the end of the programming phase, students could share their programs with their classmates and experience each other’s creations.  This is the only time playing a game in Mr. Georgsson’s classroom is appropriate!  At the end of the activity, students gave enthusiastic reviews asking for more activities in the same vein.
