Crane Country Day School Hosting Open House and Art Show on Sunday

Crane Country Day School is hosting its annual Open House and Art Show from 2 to 4 p.m. this Sunday, Jan. 26, at 1795 San Leandro Lane in Montecito.

From 2 to 3 p.m., the classrooms will be open to meet teachers and see samples of student work. The library will feature videos of a variety of Crane performance opportunities. In the Olive Tree Quad, Service Learning students will share their recent projects, and in the main plaza, a drum circle will be welcoming the visitors to the campus.

At 3 p.m., a presentation will take place in Crane’s theater, Cate Hall, which will include a song from the fourth-grade play, School House Rock, a performance from the Upper School xylophone group, Vibes!, and a slideshow of Crane activities and events.

At 3:30 p.m., the campus will come to life with a variety of activities, including math games, science experiments, art projects and garden tours.

Crane’s Open House coincides with the all-school art show, which showcases nearly 1,000 pieces of student artwork. The art theme this year, “Rock, Paper, Scissors,” takes an unconventional look at the classic phrase. The kindergarteners’ Punk Rock Turtles show off their wild side, and third-grade miniature rock-climbing walls test the limits. Fifth-graders’ whimsical papier-mâché masks and eighth-grade unique shadow boxes are sure to delight children and adults alike.

Crane offers the Open House as an opportunity for the whole family to visit the campus, meet the teachers, and experience the unique programs and curriculum that the school has to offer. Stop by on Sunday and take a look! The Open House and Art Show event is rain or shine.

For more information, call Crane’s Admission Office at 805.969.7732 or email [email protected].

— Julia Davis is the associate director of admission for Crane Country Day School.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
