Dodge Pratt Northam Art and Community Center

Agency:  Dodge Pratt Northam Art and Community Center

Volunteer Projects:  Summer Side Walk Art Contest, Arts in our Schools Winter Festival and Mystery Dinner Theater

Summary:  The Pratt House Music Program and the STEAM K-5 along with students from the Tween and Teens Pickup STEAM Programs were asked again this year to perform at the Schools Winter Festival.  This provides a unique experience for students to be engaged in music.

Everyone who attended the Mystery Dinner Theater enjoyed the dining experience.  Many students who helped clean up before and after the performance found that volunteer work is hard, but well worth all the nice compliments they received.  For many, this was the first time performing in front of a large crowd.  All enjoyed and are asking when we will be doing another.

The student's learn valuable community service responsibilities while enjoying themselves during their performances.  Each child choose to be part of the evening's festivities.  The Robotic students provided demonstration on their robots so the community would have a better idea what the program is about.  Several of the Pratt House Music Student's performed solos.
