A Spectacular Artist-In-Residence Program Offers a Trip to Japan Without Leaving CSD!

What a fabulous opportunity!

Colchester School District Vision and Strategic Plan 2012–2017’s pathways include Pathway A: High Standards, Expectations, and Individual Engagement for All Learners and Pathway E: Parent, Community, and School Partnerships Among Lifelong Learners. This year, the Union Memorial School PTO has sponsored the school’s triennial artist-in-residence program—Taiko drumming with Stuart Paton, founder of Burlington Taiko!

This incredible artist-in-residence program opportunity—culminating with a school-wide performance on Tuesday, March 19 at 6:30 p.m. in the community theater at Colchester High School—offers students an introduction to a creative outlet, is designed to further their understanding and appreciation of other cultures, and has been a long-anticipated and proud school-wide interdisciplinary effort. In addition to the weeklong work with Stuart Paton:
