Topic outline

  • General



    The Music and Performing Arts curriculum at Glenealy strives to provide children with opportunities and resources to express their learning through a creative lens. By promoting and developing creative self-expression, presentation skills, collaboration skills, and cultural awareness, children can create meaningful connections and find new and exciting ways to express their curiosity, experiences and unique perspectives of the world around us.

      • We will manage the space around our computer, keeping the area as clear as possible by avoiding having toys, pets or any food in your work space. (It is ok to have water available during Zoom)
