CISD Students Celebrate Fine Arts Education Day

More than 5,800 Conroe ISD students, teachers, and chaperones participated in Fine Arts Education Day on Oct. 12 at The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion.

Fine Arts Education Day is a free educational concert featuring the Houston Symphony sponsored by The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion. The event is designed to introduce fourth grade students to orchestral music and the various instruments in band and orchestra before they choose an elective in fifth grade. Some fifth- and sixth-graders are invited to watch so they can observe where their studies could take them if they continue their pursuit of music in junior high.

Visit conroeisd.net/ci/fine-arts/ for more information about program offerings. Additional information about The Pavilion’s Education Outreach Programs is at woodlandscenter.org/education.

Rosehill Christian School Announces One-Act Play Contest District Results

Rosehill Christian School (RCS) high school drama students (cast and crew) traveled to Kerrville on Nov. 6 and 7 for the TAPPS Division III State One-Act Play contest held at the Callioux Theater. The state-level competition was extremely stiff, but the RCS team performed a flawless performance of Sister, Sister. As a team, RCS placed fifth in the state. Additionally, the following students received individual all-state awards: Paige Powers, All Star Cast, and Allison Strange, All Star Cast Honorable Mention.

The state contest was an amazing time of teamwork and bonding. Drama Director Teri Clark said, “This is always such an amazing experience for these kids. We have some fun and very meaningful group times and devotionals, as well as team building, and play rehearsals. Even the load-in and tech rehearsal ran like a well-oiled machine. It has been so gratifying to see all of my students grow, learn and hone their skills and talents. Some of them I have worked with for four years; others were on cast or crew for the first time. They are all excellent young men and women both on and off the stage. They are avid learners, good listeners, supportive of each other, and respectful of authority.”
