Pardon our dust! If you stop by school you may notice that a lot of parts are moving around. We’re excited to be finishing the construction of four new classrooms upstairs. This has left us temporarily out of sorts. However, we will absolutely be ready for students on August 29th!
Electronic versions of Back to School information available here! School Begins Monday August 29, 2016. Don’t forget that Kindergarten families have a special staggered entry schedule. Please call our office if you do not know your staggered entry assignment.
Creative City Public Charter School is a new, progressive charter elementary school in northwest Baltimore City. With small classes and a focus on the arts, students connect with nature and their community through hands-on projects and exploration. We are open to all students in Baltimore City. Students are chosen by lottery, not by grades or test scores. For more information, click here.
CREATIVE CITY STUDENT ARTISTS ARE ALL OVER MARYLAND!
- Second-grader Mehki L’s artwork was one of three pieces selected to represent Baltimore City Public Schools at the “Making Your Mark” juried youth art show at Thurgood Marshall, Baltimore Washington International Airport. The show will be on display from late May until November of this year.
- Ms. Gordy’s class wrote a play, “Foxy Grandpa,” that was performed in May as part of the Young Playwright’s Festival. It was chosen from a field of 600 applicants, and a monologue by Gregg G. in Ms. Brown’s class was also performed.
- Amani M. and Henry W. (first grade) and Triniece C. and Samantha S. (third grade) were featured in the regional “For Your Inspiration” exhibit at the Baltimore Museum of Art.
- Amani M., in Ms. Mongan’s first grade class, and Celia G., in Ms. Carver’s third grade class, created two of only eight Baltimore City works selected for an exhibit at the State Treasury building in Annapolis, MD.
- Third grade student Teneille W.’s artwork, a print mural created by Ms. Brown’s second grade students, and hand-bound books containing prints and monologues by Ms. Carver’s third grade students are all included in the Arts Everyday exhibit, “My Baltimore,” at the Walters Art Museum.
- For the third time in a row, a Creative City student artist won the Mayor’s Holiday Card competition. This year’s card featured Zephyr C.’s artwork featuring mittens.
- Watch second-grader Earl L. give the weather on Fox 45 News on YouTube! (You may think this is not art-related, but just wait for the dancing to start.)
