Cab Students attend “Once on This Island”

The annual middle school musical performance!

article_1

Monday, February 4, 2019, at Cab Calloway School of the Arts, all Cab middle and high school students were treated to a morning performance of the middle school musical production of “Once on This Island”.

Taking place in the French Antilles archipelago in the Caribbean Sea, “Once on This Island” is a musical set during a hurricane when a group of children decide to tell a story to comfort one another during the storm. The story is about a young woman who tries to follow her heart and four magical gods who make her journey difficult, however, in the end she uses the power of love to bring together people of different social classes. This is a modern retelling of Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Little Mermaid,” and explores Haitian culture and spirituality through beautiful Caribbean-style music.

The Musical consisted of a large cast of sixth, seventh and eighth grade students. Most of which were comprised of Cab Calloway Theater, Vocal Music and Dance majors. Directed by middle school theatre teachers Sarah Nowak and Amanda Curry, original lyrics written by Lynn Ahrens and music by Stephen Flaherty.  The production included Caribbean themed songs such as “Why We Tell the Story”, “We Dance”, “Waiting for Life”, “Pray” and “Mama Will Provide”.

Elaborate production went into prop, costume and stage design.  Attendees were treated to dazzling light and sound production from high school Theater Production and Communication Arts majors.  At one point during the musical it was actually raining in the middle of the stage, unsurprisingly during the song “Rain”.

On Tuesday, February 5th, there will be an encore performance of the musical for Red Clay Consolidated School District elementary school students.  This is a rescheduled performance due to the two hour delayed schedule from last week’s freezing weather.

Cab Calloway Midterm Exam Bell Schedules

for High School and Middle School

Brandywine Photo Collective

The opening reception is January 4 from 5:00pm-7:00pm

The exhibition runs January 4-February 17.  The opening reception is January 4 from 5:00pm-7:00pm.

This group exhibition came about as the artists of the Brandywine Photo Collective organized this art-making challenge for each member to interpret their won image, shot either on film or digitally, as well as three other raw images by their fellow members.  They were tasked with personalizing unfamiliar subjects and compositions.  As they altered their raw imagery, using computer software and/or physical manipulation, they began to consider what makes their final photographs as expression of their own ability and aesthetic.  This challenge became as exploration of what made each final artwork unique.

Cab Calloway Seventh Grade Business Students Participate in the 2018 Hour of Code

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

20181210_090845 20181210_090706

On Monday and Tuesday, December 3rd and 4th, students in Mr. Georgsson’s Seventh 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 Computer Science Education Week (December 3-7, 2018).  The Hour of Code is a global movement by Computer Science Education Week and Code.org 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 had students create their own digital dance party!  Amazon and Code.org partnered for this year’s Hour of Code as part of Amazon’s Future Engineer program, a comprehensive kindergarten-to-career program that works to inspire, educate, and train 10 million children and young adults each year from underrepresented communities to pursue careers in the fast-growing field of computer science.

Right from the start, students were very engaged due to the integration of trendy music and a fun theme that had everyone bobbing their heads to the music and mimicking their sprites as they danced in the play space on their screens.  Each explored a series of steps while they were exposed to increasingly challenging programming concepts.  Each step would build upon the previous one until students had the knowledge necessary to complete their “Dance Party” at the end of the exercise.  The final stage involved students testing their programs and mimicking the dances on their screens.

At the end of the programming phase, students walked around the room and enjoyed each other’s creations!  At the end of the activity, students gave enthusiastic reviews asking for more activities of the same vein.

showstoppers18_mythos

ShowStoppers is Cab Calloway School of the Arts yearly extravaganza, where Middle and High School Arts classes demonstrate why our school is truly a school of the arts. Since 1999, Cab has had an overarching theme attached to the performances, this year’s theme is ‘Mythos’; a recurrent narrative theme or a set of beliefs or assumptions.

This year’s ShowStoppers attendees will see and hear performances dealing with women empowerment, the planets as gods, Shakespeare’s Macbeth, zombies, universal truths, storytelling, addiction to caffeine and, of course, the Spirit of Cab Calloway is featured during the ‘Minnie the Moocher’ finale.

Cheer for your favorite performer but be prepared to be overwhelmed by every act in ShowStoppers 2018!
