Aloha permies,

In our latest podcast episode, you'll hear how the children at an elementary school became rock stars. Pōmaikaʻi Elementary School has become a model for how to use the arts to inspire children to reach their highest potential in the classroom, in the community, & beyond. We sat down with 2 educators, Melinda Caroll & Rae Takemoto, & heard the stories about an innovative arts integration project that combines classroom learning, science, garden learning & music. Together, with the school garden as the theme, Melinda & Rae lead the children of the school through the entire process of creating a CD, from songwriting, to professional recording, to sharing the music with the world. Melinda & Rae believe strongly in creative potential. They share with us fantastic stories about their experiences & observations of how the arts can be woven into schools with powerful results.
