This is where DIVERSITY UNITES
Resurrection School is pleased to offer a variety of opportunities for students to express themselves through the arts. We feel fortunate that along with Physical Education, music, art and Spanish are part of the curriculum for our students.
Our very own Sr. Fidelma spends time weekly with students in Junior Kindergarten through 5th grade working on choral music and absorbing music of different time periods. Students in grades 6th through 8th receive musical instruction in preparation for our Christmas concert. The annual concert is put on by students in JK through 8th Grade for all families to enjoy!
Through the efforts of the PTG, fundraising dollars are used to support the school's Art program. The Community School of Music and Arts is contracted to provide weekly or bi-weekly art classes to students in Kindergarten through 8th grade. A few times per year selected students have their artwork chosen to be exhibited the Community School of Music and Arts and at Google headquarters in Mountain View. Visit the student's artwork on display during Open House in January!
Under the direction of Sister Fidelma, our school choir is open to students in 3rd through 8th Grade. Students practice once per week after school and provide the music at our weekly masses on Fridays. There are opportunities for students who play instruments to accompany the choir as well.
The Music School at Sunnyvale (location next door to Resurrection) provides the Band direction for our students. Students in 4th – 8th Grade can participate in our Band program. A demonstration will be given to students on August 28.
Resurrection School participates in the annual San Jose Diocese Chorale Festival held in the Spring. Some years it is our choir who represents our school at the Festival and in other years we are represented by selected classes. The students always represent our school so well and we consistently receive positive comments from the judges.
Liturgical Dance (7th and 8th)
At Resurrection we have Liturgical celebrations throughout the year. Students in 7th and 8th Grade who are interested in dance perform a choreographed routine that enhances the meaning of the celebration.
