The week of October 25-29 was a busy one for everyone at BHESA. The Open Dream Ensemble began it's two-week residency on Monday, Jagged Pearls sponsored I Am Beautiful night on Thursday, and the first Honor Roll assembly of 2010-2011 was held on Friday.

Open Dream Ensemble Arts' Residency

The Open Dream Ensemble from NC School of the Arts, Winston-Salem, began its two-week residency at BHESA on October 25. The group performed “Peril of the Red Planet” to students on the first two days of the residency.

The ensemble then went into classrooms daily to teach science and social studies lessons for students in grades three through five. Students in fourth grade are learning about rocks and minerals while students in fifth grade are learning about landforms.

The ensembles’ energy and creativity was evident in each classroom. Click here to see the ensemble in action!

I Am Beautiful

The Jagged Pearls Club presented I Am Beautiful Night on October 28. Jagged Pearls is a club which promotes self-esteem and ladylike behavior even when no one is watching. Every month the club has a community service project.

I Am Beautiful Night, October’s project, was open to all K-5 girls in Union County. The event featured a station with manicures and face painting, a dress-up station, as well as a “globalization” station where guests learned about girls around the world.

The five dollar charge for the event supports a Jagged Pearls’ trip to Washington, D.C. next spring. Ninety-five girls and their chaperones attended the event enabling Jagged Pearls to raise $475 dollars for the trip. Click here to see images from the evening.
