Khảo sát này được thiết kế để thích ứng với câu trả lời của bạn và sẽ mất từ 3 đến 7 phút để hoàn thành. Cảm ơn bạn trước sự tham gia của bạn.
Through the Evergreen Elementary School District, an art teacher visits our 4th through 6th graders on a weekly basis.
Evergreen District School Band
Band is an optional part of the curriculum offered to all 5th and 6th grade students. Class meets for approximately 45 minutes once a week during the school day and is a “Performing Arts” class. Instruction will be offered on flute, clarinet, alto saxophone, trumpet, and trombone.
There is no cost for this program. However, all students may need to rent or buy their instrument and are expected to purchase a cleaning/care kit for their instrument of choice. Students choosing to learn Clarinet or Alto Saxophone also need Reeds.
Performances are important and all students are expected to perform in the Winter & Spring Concerts. (Time & Location TBA)
Shakespeare Festival Works
Midnight Shakespeare at Cadwallader Elementary School meets Mondays and Wednesdays afterschool from 3 p.m.- 6 p.m. for 10 weeks. This exciting and hands-on program allows students to explore the world of theater, and perform their own Shakespeare play! Students benefit from professional theater teaching artists, who guide students through exercises designed to foster creativity and self-expression. Students take part in classes in acting, theater games, clowning, and stage combat. The program finishes with a fully staged and costumed performance of a Shakespeare play for an audience of family and friends. In the fall we hold a performance. Midnight Shakespeare is appropriate for first-time performers as well as more experienced young actors. Participation in Midnight Shakespeare is FREE, with the opportunity to earn prizes along the way! All materials and supplies provided. For more info, visit sfshakes.org or call 415-558-0888.
Each year in the Fall, Cadwallader’s fifth graders are offered the opportunity to spend one week at Walden West Outdoor Science School, located at Via West in Cupertino. The facility is situated on 55 acres of beautiful oak woodland and is adjacent to Stevens Creek Park in the Cupertino Foothills. Santa Clara County Office of Education has been operating the outdoor school for fifth and sixth grade students since 1950.
During their stay at Walden West, students enjoy learning about the forest, meadow, and stream communities through the use of games and other activities. Qualified naturalists will use their expertise to help children see the interrelationships between plants and animals, as well as the effect we have on the environment. The experience is social, as well as academic. Living 24 hours a day with other students requires your child to cooperate and work together with others toward common goals. Throughout the week, classroom teachers will be available to help students adjust to being away from home. In the end, however, friendships and memories are made that last a lifetime. What greater way to learn than to be immersed in real-life science for one week!
Last year our Kinder/1st grade students researched, built, and tested penny boats to see which ones could hold the most pennies, 2nd/3rd grade students created ziplines to see who could get the farthest, and upper grade students researched, built and tested House of Cards to see which one could sustain the highest structure.. Stay tuned for our Science Challenge in 2019-2020 that will take place in the spring.
Science Night is a family fun evening filled with science activities for students. The night starts out with a 45 minute Science Show, followed by activity tables where your little scientist will have an opportunity to see experiments up close and personal. Students conduct some experiments of their own to be taken home! The evening includes a special event for 5th and 6th graders focusing on a unit from their Science studies. Check the school calendar for more details as the event date approaches.
The Music for Minors program brings a variety of music experiences to Cadwallader. Lessons will be taught once a week for 30 minutes from September through May, Students enjoy hands-on participation in many facets of music, such as singing, movement, theory, dance, musical games and use of rhythm instruments.
As a part of the city of San Jose's Walk n' Roll program, Cadwallader families are encouraged to walk or bike to school on Wednesdays to promote daily physical activity, reduce traffic congestion around the school, and learn critical skills that enhance biking and pedestrian safety.
This program is funded through the city of San Jose's Metropolitan Transportation Commission's Climate Initiative grant to increase the number of students who walk or bike to school. Since the program began in 2012, there has been a 53.5% increase in the number of students who walk and bike to school at least three times a week.

Royal Dance comes to Cadwallader School! Age appropriate music and dance are instructed to the students that help develop motor and non motor skills. The dances included range from hip-hop, ballroom,fitness based rhythm dances and community based dances. The overall goal is to motivate and inspire the participants to take positive risks and discover confidence within themselves.
