Art and Talents
The Hallen TEACCH/Lower School Art Program affords students an outlet for self expression within the framework of activities which are planned to develop various skills. Projects range from small individual works to grand collaborations involving all students in the program. There are also extra art periods where highly motivated and talented students pursue their personal interests for much of the year and then work together to produce a project — the backdrop used in the school’s annual talent show.
Health classes are provided by classroom teachers for all elementary and middle school students. Once in the high school program, a certified Health teacher delivers the state approved curriculum. The core of the instructional content aligns with NY State Standards and includes topics such as care of the body, functions of the body, protection from disease and healthy foods. Health habits and attitudes are the focus of each lesson.
Music To Our Ears
The music program is an essential part of the Hallen School. It creates an opportunity for all students to work collaboratively and interactively with each other. The students are given a chance to express themselves creatively in a safe and fun environment.
Vocal training, guitar and piano lessons are available privately based on interest from our upper school program.
The students have opportunities throughout the year to showcase their talents at various assemblies and shows.
The music teacher works with all students to increase their imagination and to build self esteem.
