bpeforarts | ListenUp

Workshop Day Friday, October 27

What Are ArtS Days?

  • In addition to Bridge Point's wonderful regular art and music programs, we have bpeforarts - an arts and culture outreach initiative designed to foster, nurture and inspire our young people to take a lifelong interest in the arts.
  • October has become BPE's arts awareness month during which we 'blitz' our students with all things art including, WOW statements around campus, a 5th grade arts ambassadors program and most importantly, three back to back 1/2 days that include live performances on 2 of the days and then 1 day of hands-on workshops.
  • This year's theme is bpeforarts | ListenUp - focusing on music-related arts.

When are Arts Days?

  • October 25, 26, 27 (each of these days are 1/2 days due to parent-teacher conferences.)
  • FRIDAY, OCTOBER 27 (workshop day) requires lots of parent volunteers! 
  • bpeforarts is celebrating it's 6th year and we are looking forward to your support so we may continue this exciting enrichment endeavor. It takes a village!

How can I get involved?

  • We need 3 volunteer to lead/assistant in our workshop presentations to each homeroom on Friday, October 27th between 8 am - noon.  You can sign up now for your child's class!  
  • There will be a meeting in early October to provide you with all the guidance you need to lead or assist with the workshops.
  • We also need volunteers to help prepare materials and set up classrooms in the days before Arts Day if you are able to give time in that way.
