Cultural Arts


The CSES PTA Cultural Arts Program provides enrichment to the MCPS curriculum by exposing our students to a variety of cultural arts topics via cultural arts assemblies and an artist-in-residence Program.

Students attend 4-5 assembly performances throughout the school year. These cultural arts’ performers provide education and inspiration to our students in numerous subject areas. Parents are always welcome to attend the assemblies For scheduling info, check out our PTA calendar. here are Some of the programs presented over the years:

Artist-in-Residence Program

Every year, the PTA also hosts an Artist-in-Residence program which provides longer-term enrichment to our students.
