RPA Students Learning through Art, Movement, Music and Play 

Freshman Caitlin Cason works on a craft with Milo Eberhart, 4, during one of the class visits.

For the fourth semester in a row, teacher Tamara Bremont is teaching a unique class at RPA High called Learning Through Art, Movement, Music and Play. 

Students enrolled in this course work together to learn about child development and the importance of incorporating play, art and music into their daily routines. They’re also helping to prepare projects and learning activities for the children who attend the Growing Giraffes Preschool. an organization that partners with Bremont’s Early Childhood Education classes as well as RPA staff who need daycare services. 

“This class is hard to describe in a simple course description,” laughed Bremont, “We do a lot of crafts and no two classes are the same. There are always several different projects going on at once.  Next month is zoo-themed at the preschool, so creating zoo projects is our focus right now.”

Students spend two classes a week creating projects to use at the preschool and the third day is spent with the kids singing, playing, and making crafts together.  The day the “big kids” come to visit is definitely a favorite of both the high school students and the preschoolers, Bremont said.
