Lutheran Schools Fine Arts Festival
and Elementary Spring Concert
The Fine Arts Festival allows students to showcase their talents in vocal and instrumental performance, piano, and dramatic reading. Students receive judges' critiques and ribbons. Every child at every grade also has a visual art project of his choice on display. Participation ribbons are given to the youngest artist, while the visual art projects of the older students are judged.
Creative writing prose and poetry are collected by classroom teachers in February and submitted for judging before the festival. The student pieces and their ribbons are on display during the festival.
Weeks of student work culminates in science projects in engineering and the scientific method. These are set up and judged the night before the festival. Parents and students may browse these displays in the Science Fair Project classrooms while awaiting the concert.
The culmination of the Fine Arts Festival are the choir concerts by the various participating schools. This usually takes place around noon but is subject to change based on the day's scheduling.
