SPECIAL AREAS PHILOSOPHIES
All students at Crabapple Crossing Elementary have music class once a week for 45 minutes. Music classes are designed to meet both the Georgia Performance Standards and the National Standards for Music Education. Typical music class activities include singing, playing, listening to, moving to and creating music. Concerts for each grade level are presented throughout the year to give all students the opportunity to share what they have learned with family and friends. In addition, 4th and 5th grade students may join the CCES Chorus or one of the instrumental Music Clubs offered after school.
Our physical education program strives to build knowledgeable and healthy students who will stay active for a lifetime. We use a variety of activities, games, and skill instructions to keep our students interested and motivated, thus ensuring that they are getting maximum benefits of a quality physical education.
We believe the study of art provides major opportunities to nourish high level thinking. When well taught, skills associated with artistic thinking include the ability to see clearly, analyze, reflect, make judgments, forge connections among ideas and information, and generate new ideas from diverse sources.
