Gallery Walk 2013
It’s back! The Gallery Walk is back thanks to our fabulous art teacher, Lauren Shellberg, and some wonderful parent volunteers who’ve given their time and creativity. Many thanks to Laura Agelopoulos, Shannon Connell, Alyson Khan, Ben Makinen, Emily Milias, Kathleen Phelan, and Stephanie Simpson.
The walking tour will be self-guided. Student volunteers will hand out maps after school on the day of the walk – May 16 — at the playground gate. Maps will also be available at pick-up from KC.
Please join your children, the Bromwell community, and our generous Cherry Creek North neighbors as we celebrate art in our community.
Special thanks to Karen Krzyzaniak & Yogurt Guru for their generous coupon available at the galleries.
Bromwell Students Storm the Stages at the Shakespeare Festival
Every May, Denver Public Schools sponsors an outdoor Shakespeare Festival on the grounds of the Denver Center for the Performing Arts (DCPA). Many DPS schools participate, however, Bromwell makes a point to enter several Shakespearian scenes each year.
Ms. Kraybill performs three scenes each year which involve all the third graders in her class. She usually chooses Act 1, Scene 1 from “Romeo and Juliet” for the wonderful fight scene; Act IV, Scene 1 from “Macbeth” for the ghoulish witches scene; and Act I Scene 1 from “King Lear” for the terrific sibling rivalry. Mr. Replogle offers Shakespeare as a Bromwell Enrichment activity after school and enters various scenes. It is his goal to do a scene from every Shakespearian play.
The children who participate in the Shakespeare Festival always come away from the event saying it is one of their favorite memories of Bromwell.
Avid4 Adventure serves to inspire life-long active outdoor lifestyles and environmental stewardship through experiences that provide personal development and memorable adventures.
Students do everything from kayaking to rock climbing to mountain biking. They work on individual skills as well as team building skills. It is a day students look forward to with great anticipation. At Bromwell, Avid4 Adventure takes place in May nearly every year. We rotate it with a traditional field day.
At Bromwell, the opportunity to participate in Avid4 Adventure comes in part from a PTSA grant given each year.
Bromwell is fortunate to work each year with the Missoula Children’s Theater Company. All grades at Bromwell are welcome to participate in the production, which is performed with fantastic costumes and remarkable enthusiasm by the kids. The production is performed at the end of just one week of intensive rehearsals.
This year’s Missoula Theater week is November 5-10, with shows on Friday, November 9 and Saturday, November 10. The children will be performing The Wizard of Oz. For more information, contact Alison Wolfe.
The mission of MCT is “The development of life skills in children through participation in the performing arts.” To learn more about Missoula Children’s Theater, CLICK HERE
Multicultural Week at Bromwell has two main purposes:
- To demonstrate knowledge of and interest in students, their cultures, communities, and/or their background experience.
- To demonstrate culturally responsive teaching into classrooms by integrating students’ cultures within the classroom and celebrating diversity.
Multicultural Week kids off with an all-school dragon parade assembly in the gym, celebrating the Chinese New Year. During the week, students learn in the classroom and during special events about different world cultures. The week is packed with presentations by teachers, parents, and special guests. It all wraps up with Multicultural Night, which showcases the artistic, musical, and dance talents of Bromwell students and teachers and builds our community spirit with an open potluck.
Multicultural Week grew out of a day-long celebration that began at Bromwell years ago and was supported by many hard-working parents and staff.
