What: Southwood Student Learning Exhibit

Where: Southwood School

155 Barkman Avenue

Steinbach Manitoba

When: Thursday, March 23

5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

We invite you to bring your Southwood children to school and share in their creativity! The focus for this years Student Learning Expo is the Arts. As we shape our instruction with the STEAM model in mind, we continue to explore opportunities to provoke, explore, and reflect as learners.

In preparation for this years Learning Expo, we invited Colleen Watchorn, a local Steinbach artist, to work with our students. Colleen teaches art at several of the local schools, and has also given free art lessons at the Loewen Green Art Scene during the summer months and painted in the Artists in the City tent at the Summer in the City Festival. The Learning Expo will serve as an opportunity for students to share their product and learning with their parents as part of the exhibition. Students will also prepare other pieces of art, whether they are visual arts, performing arts, or creative literature to be on display. These forms of student work will be shared and exhibited in their own classrooms and hallways.

In addition to the classroom exhibitions, a stage and seating will be set up in the gym for the evening. There will be some students who will share various forms of expression (drama, poetry, choir, readers theatre, tableau, freeze frame, etc.) on the stage. We are also planning to have the classes who participated in the speech arts festival perform on stage, Mrs. Brown will have some numbers prepared by students as well.

It should be a great evening of celebrating the arts at Southwood School.
