Artes Vitae

Ears to listen and eyes to see.

Longtime readers of the weekly news can attest: that calendar at the top of the page is gaining weight.

With so many moving parts in our community, and so many big ideas, it starts to add up. If we ever get overwhelmed, we remind ourselves: this is the wonderful result of listening.

Parents asked for more evening education opportunities for them to connect to their children's learning. We listened.

Students and staff asked for more arts and performance opportunities. We listened.
The community asked for a quick and easy way to check in on upcoming events every week. We listened!

It's amazing what comes of doing the simple things we ingrain in our children every day:

  • Stop
  • Look
  • Listen

There are so many ways to take part, and no end of ways to keep growing, once you do. We listen, we learn, and we love what we do.

And, as always, thank you for reading.
