    Poe Magnet Thursday (Teams meeting link)

    Starry Night Over Poe  
    As a fine arts magnet school, our goal is to develop creative thinkers and performers in the arts that recognize and appreciate how the arts, through time, have continued to distinguish as well as connect all cultures and societies. We seek to allow each child the opportunity to discover and develop their individual talents in the arts and to understand the relationships between academics and the arts.
    Students attend enrichment classes daily, taught by specialists in the following areas:
    • Visual Arts
    • Dance                       
    • Music
    • Physical Education
    • Theatre

    • Magnet/IB Coordinator:
