Fine Arts Banner

Silver Oak Fine Arts is comprised of music, art, and performing arts. SOEP/PTO supports both in-class music and art instruction for all grades, as well as coordinates extracurricular Fine Arts programs that students have the option to register for and participate in over the course of the school year.

Our classroom Fine Arts programs are funded by our annual Pledge Drive. Extracurricular offerings are self-funding via registration fees to cover program costs. 

CLASSROOM STUDIO ART

Arts Attack is a year long program, offering monthly art projects for the students to complete in the classroom.

Teachers work with students on an art project at the end of the School Year which is displayed for the entire school to enjoy and during Open House for any new families to get a sneak peek at some wonderful art projects that students of Silver Oak Elementary have worked on.

CLASSROOM MUSIC INSTRUCTION

At Silver Oak Elementary, we give a balanced education by providing every class with music instruction. TK/K work on understanding music instruments and how they sound, whereas 1-4th graders enjoy music instruction and learning about notes and 5th/6th grades learn to play Ukulele and perform at the end of the school year.

HOLIDAY CHOIR

Holiday Choir is a wonderful program where students from grades 1st-3rd sing some holiday songs and learn to work in a team environment and singing in Chorus.

UPPER GRADE PLAY

The Upper Grade Play is performed by 4 – 6  graders in the Fall and they are instructed on every aspect of performing in a play from dialogue delivery to performing in front of an audience which definitely prepares them for public speaking in the future.

LOWER GRADE PLAY

The Lower Grade Play is performed by 1st – 3rd graders in the Spring and they are introduced to stage presence and performing in front of an audience. They also learn teamwork, dialogue delivery and gaining confidence on stage.

STUDENT TALENT SHOWCASE

Every year at Silver Oak Elementary, we organize a Talent Show where students get to show off their unique talents in front of an audience and it is always fun to watch so much talent and skills present in the young kids of today.

In a magical underwater kingdom, the beautiful young mermaid, Ariel, longs to leave her ocean home — and her fins — behind and live in the world above.

LITTLE MERMAID - SILVER OAK ENROLLMENT LINK

All 4th-6th grade students that complete registration are in the show! Auditions will be held the first two rehearsals to determine who will play which role. Casting decisions are made by the Starting Arts team. Students do not need to prepare anything for the audition. All audition materials will be provided/taught.


IN-PERSON PARTICIPATION GOALS

The goal is to rehearse and perform in-person, but if the cast needs to quarantine for any amount of time, we will hold virtual rehearsals during the quarantine time period. If we get to the performances and are not allowed to have an audience, we will record/live stream the show for the community.

 

For questions about the production, please contact the Michelle at Starting Arts.

Students in grades 1 - 3... this is your chance to shine in our holiday choir! Our Holiday Choir will learn seasonal songs to perform for school assemblies, and an evening show before our holiday break.

Silver Oak PTO is pleased to offer the Silver Oak Holiday Choir, and to welcome back music teacher, Mr. Andrew Boyd, to instruct this festive and fun Fine Arts enrichment program.
 



PARENT VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!

You will not need to attend every rehearsal... we will be asking for parent volunteers to fill that supervisory need. Please help us ensure our choir program runs smoothly... consider stepping up to volunteer today!
