Lower Grades Activities

Our students learn by doing.

Now is the time to spark your child's interests. To allow your young tinkerer to experiment in the lab. Or your little Picasso to finally get ahold of a paint brush. From academics to service learning, our many activities allow your child to find what they love to do and to enrich their lives through learning about it with their peers.
Class plays
Class plays are produced annually by students in each grade, giving them an opportunity to perform onstage in a public arena, build confidence and have fun in the process.
Strings is open to students in grades 3-5. Each grade is considered a separate ensemble, building each school year on methods learned the previous year. Beginners are welcome at any grade level, and are taught as a separate group until they are able to join the more experienced players later in the year. Each class moves at an individualized pace.
Chorus and General Music
Chorus and general music are open to students in grades 3-5. During the course of the year, students learn a variety of musical pieces to be performed at school and community functions and seasonal concerts.
Band is open to students in grades 4 and 5. Participants may choose any wind or percussion instrument. Music is arranged specifically for each student’s skill level, which allows for an individualized pace of advancement. Harmony is introduced early through specialized instrumental arrangements.
Special Events
Special events support Darlington and its mission and promote the school within our community. Examples include Purple Tie, Fall for the Arts, TigerFest, Field Day, special assemblies, and seasonal concerts.
Community Outreach
Community outreach allows students to learn about giving back to their community and develop compassion and empathy for others. Projects are coordinated by the student-led Pre-K to 8 Service Committee.
Field Trips
Field trips are coordinated within grade levels, providing opportunities for students to experience learning outside the traditional classroom. Students visit local sites in addition to taking advantage of the many cultural and educational opportunities available in the metro-Atlanta area (i.e. Atlanta Zoo, Georgia Aquarium, Alliance Theater, Woodruff Arts Center, TELLUS Science Museum, Booth Museum, and Skidaway Institute).
