This past fall, 3rd and 4th grade students listened to a piece of music and created art inspired by the music. The musical work was an orchestral tone poem, “Ein Heldenleben (A Hero’s Life), TrV 190, Op. 40” by Richard Strauss, that musically tells a story about a hero in a historical context. Students were encouraged to imagine the visual aspects in the music as they listen and how different elements in the song make them feel. Then use that to create their art pieces. The almost 700 art pieces were on display around the Appleton community from April 5…

Dear Classical Families and Friends, A great number of parents, students, and colleagues have asked me to describe the transition from being a classroom teacher to becoming the principal of Classical School. Do I miss teaching? How is it going? How do I handle student discipline or parental concerns? Question: Do I miss teaching? Answer: My educational career feels like the other chapters in my life. Beginning a new chapter does not diminish the satisfaction found in the previous ones. Teaching students on a daily basis had a specific rhythm and routine, and I do indeed miss the energy of…

Hello Classical Families and Friends, On Friday March 17th, while the wider Wisconsin community focused its attentions and celebrations on St. Patrick’s Day and the March Madness of the NCAA Basketball Tournament, our Classical School students and staff began their yearly KAT season with a traditional KAT Kickoff in our school’s forum involving all of students from kindergarten through eighth grade. Undoubtedly the Classical Knowledge-A-Thon (KAT) will never gain the press and prestige associated with these other national events; however, within the confines of our school’s walls, KAT is king for the next month until our KAT Day on Friday,…
