Crane Country Day School will host its annual Open House and Art Show from 2-4 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 29, at 1795 San Leandro Lane, Montecito.

The event is held as an opportunity for families to visit the campus, meet teachers, and experience the programs and curriculum the school offers. The event will be held rain or shine.

Crane's newly completed Oak Tree Quad complex will be open and includes the 2,000-square-foot Phil von Phul Design & Engineering Center, as well as an outdoor amphitheater, and new classroom and office spaces.

From 2-3 p.m., prospective students and their families can walk around the campus, visit the K-8 classrooms, meet the teachers, and see samples of student work.

Visitors are also invited to the art rooms to create their own art and view the annual student Art Show, which showcases some 600 pieces of K-8 student artwork, inspired by the theme “Above and Below.”

At 3 p.m., a presentation will take place in Crane’s theater, Cate Hall, which will include a musical number from the fourth-grade play, James, Janey & The Giant Peach, the Upper School xylophone group Vibes!, and selections from Music Hour, the school’s annual talent show.

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

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!
