Challenges incorporate STEM, improvisation, performing arts and visual arts skills; each challenge is open-ended and enables teams to learn and experience the creative process from imagination to innovation. In working to solve their challenges, students build confidence and creativity and hone skills like collaboration, communication and critical thinking.
For more than 50 years, the District 279 Children's Chorus has provided a high quality vocal music experience for elementary students, as well as extraordinary performances for the community.
