This has been an exciting year at my new school. It is currently a STEM school, but there are rumors among the related arts folks that we are turning it into a STEAM school to include the arts. The collaborations among the art, music, P.E., computer, and library teachers (me) have been clever and creative. Now, we have a chance to truly shine.
Thanks to the hard work of our music leader David Nooe, our school is participating in an exciting theater opportunity with the Tennessee Performing Arts Center (TPAC) and “Disney Musicals in Schools”. We will help our students produce the Disney musical for 101 Dalmatians. This is part of the new pilot program Disney is testing before implementing nation-wide. Who will be next? I wonder.
Unfortunately there is no re-release of the video/dvd to come so finding 101 Dalmatians books and memorabilia is tough. Anyone have some extras? I’ve written to Disney/Hyperion, but they don’t have this many books on hand. I am still trying to find a way to put one copy of the book in every child’s hands. I did find their website where they allow us to use their buddy icons or avatars. I’m still looking for the disclaimers on what we can and cannot post from http://disney.go.com/disneyinsider/extras/101dalmatians Ideas?
