Arts & Music
The arts are an important part of the Saint Augustine School program. In addition to weekly music and art classes, students can participate in a band, chorus, and art club. Additionally, middle school students present a Shakespeare tragedy in the spring, eighth grade students stage a dinner theatre production and our primary grades perform a musical each year.
Students in grades four through eight may enroll in the Instrumental Music Program. Lessons are held during school hours, once a week for one half hour. Band lesson times rotate so that students have their band lesson at a different time each week. It is the responsibility of each student to contact the teacher of his or her academic subject(s) for any missed work. Full band practice is held before school once a week for the advanced students. The school has contracted with the Instrumental Music Program for this program.
Those who sing, pray twice!
- Intermediate Choir (Grades 5-8)
- Chamber Singers (Grades 2-4)
Students in each of the choral groups prepare liturgical music for Mass twice a month as well as prepare music for concerts at Christmas and in the Spring. Rehearsals take place at lunch/recess and before school once a week.
