Visual Arts - Mr. Kyle Underwood

Visual arts are the recorded expression of past and current cultures, an essential communication of individuals and communities. The ability to express ourselves artistically is an innate characteristic of what defines every one of us as human. An education in the arts provides our students with the opportunity to fully develop this most human characteristic – preparing them to become innovative, creative and thoughtful members of our community.
Our goal is to enable students to effectively use the global language of the visual arts to creatively communicate their observations and understanding of their world. Based on goals developed from the SAU48 curriculum, the NH State Frameworks for the Arts and the National Standards for Arts Education, our visual arts curriculum strives to progressively strengthen students understanding of techniques and materials. We emphasize inquiry, thoughtful exploration and creative problem solving to explore connections between cultures and integrated curriculum areas.

Computer Education - Grades 1-8 - Mr. Paul Yelle

From the early days of first grade when students are learning how to log on to the computer to the final days of eighth grade where the students are performing advanced tasks – most students find computers to be fun to use. Computer class is often times a combination of learning how to use technology while supplementing classroom curriculum. The students are quick natural learners which is helpful as technology evolves over the eight years I teach them. My goal is to teach them how to learn and figure out stuff on their own. This will help them better understand how and why things work, pick the right tool for the job, know how to troubleshoot as well as adapt to new technologies and ways of doing things.

Library Skills - Mrs. Shelley Thompson

Our goal at the CES Library is to instill in children the lifelong love of great literature. We seek to identify and develop each child’s skills and individual qualities to create literary enthusiasts. A great story has the power to transport children and cultivate their creativity. In reading a story aloud to Kindergarten through 5th grade, we offer a distinct opportunity to develop a child’s imagination. Once a child learns the structure of stories, their understanding of books soars skyward. The library is always open to students, especially those in 6th-8th grade, as a research facility and a quiet study space. The library’s collection is continually updated with new materials.
“When she’d read, her voice wrapped around my head and my heart, and it softened and lightened everything up. It put a pain in my heart that felt good. . . I wanted to read like her, so I could have that feeling anytime.”
From the book, “Ida B.” by Katherine Hannigan, Greenwillow, 2004

Music - Mr. Anthony Coppola

The Campton Elementary School music program is very active. Student ensembles have performed at Plymouth State University, Campton Old Home Day, for the Manchester Monarchs and the New Hampshire Fisher Cats, along with many school concerts each year. The National Standards of Music Education are used to build curricula that brings together music and traditions from around the world, along with a strong focus on rhythm, pitch and integration of other core subjects. Students may choose to begin a band instrument in 5th grade, and middle schoolers can join the jazz band or vocal jazz ensemble, both of which meet after school. Selected students also perform in the Lakes Region Junior High Music Festival and SAU 48’s Cultural Arts Night. If you have any questions, please e-mail Mr. Coppola at acoppola@ces.sau48.org

Spanish - Mrs. Carla Savage

In Spanish class this year your child will be introduced to the Spanish language through speaking, listening, reading, writing, acting and much more. Along with learning how to speak Spanish we will also try to gain a cultural awareness about Spain, Mexico, Central America and South America. Your child will be introduced to various customs, traditions and holidays practiced and celebrated within these countries. Some major themes we will be studying throughout the various grades this year are:
*Numbers, Alphabet, Colors, Name questions, Greetings and Good-byes
*Days, Months, Seasons, Weather
*Describing self and others
*Classroom objects, expressions and classes
*Family members, Body parts, Animals, Clothing, Food
*Expressing likes and dislikes
Learning another language has a multitude of benefits. In Spanish class, your child will gain the confidence needed to continue on into high school learning another language. Whether by performing a written skit with puppets, singing a song, reading a Spanish story, or completing a cultural art project; your child will gain exposure to not only the Spanish language but its people, traditions and culture.
