Specials

“Specials” is a name given to our Art, Music, PE and Library classes. Our students would agree they are special indeed.

Art

In our art room students will: make art, view and make value judgments about art, examine art in a historical context, and make connections with art in their lives. The NCSD Essential Curriculum and the Wyoming Fine Art Standards provide direction for our art program. The state standards and NCSD Curriculum are organized in a discipline based approach. This instructional approach is used in our visual art instruction.

Music

Natrona County School District currently utilizes the Game Plan music curriculum, by Randy DeLelles and Jeff Krisky. This comprehensive, active music program incorporates all aspects of music education using the Orff Schulwerk model. Folk Songs, lots of movement, dance and barred instruments such as xylophones and glockenspiels are all central to the music curriculum.

Three special events each year in Music are the 2nd Grade Christmas Program, the all-school Christmas Sing-Along, and the 4th Grade Spring Recorder Concert.

PE

Each child participates in a structured physical education program twice a week unless excused for medical reasons, which must be in writing from a care provider. The physical education program is designed to teach your child important physical skill development that will carry over into day-to-day life and help promote good healthy habits everyday.

Two special events in each year for student in PE is Jump Rope for Heart in February and our annual Track Day in May.

Track Day

Library

The library is a center of instruction at Fort Caspar Academy. Students are taught basic library skills at each grade level. The librarian is also aware of the classroom activities that relate to specific information in the library, and works cooperatively with classroom teachers to support the various academic subjects. Students are expected to be quiet in the library, and all regular classroom rules apply. Students may choose to go to the library rather than go outside for recess to do reading or research.

The library hosts two book fairs each year – one in the Fall and one in the Spring.
