A.C.T.S. Drama Club (LS) 

Fall 2022, beginning September 7

A.C.T.S. (Acting, Creating, Teaching, Serving) is the Lower School drama club and is open to any Lower School students in 3rd-5th grades who would like to explore drama ministry. A.C.T.S. students will all attend fun workshops once a month to learn improvisation and acting techniques (voice projection and enunciation, movement, characterization, emotion, stage directions, etc.). Drama ministry will be emphasized, so the students can learn how to use the talents that God has blessed each of them with by ministering to others. Students will select if they would like to participate in readers’ theatre, puppetry, human video, or traditional style skits. Some students will have the opportunity to minister in chapel by performing skits and helping to set up monthly discussion questions in the classrooms; others will minister in the classrooms to reinforce the teachers’ lessons. Every student will have a chance to minister at least once during the semester. Depending upon the circumstances, skits may need to be recorded for teachers to show to their students instead of being performed live.

Experience Music

Private Lessons (US and LS)

Fall 2022

Over the past year, we have been working with The Music Box in Winter Springs. We have had the opportunity to connect and work out the details of how we could benefit from partnering with each other, allowing us to impact music education in Winter Springs and the Oviedo area. We were drawn to each other's music programs by carrying similar goals and values. Together, we established a plan to bring more private lessons instructors to our space at TMA. By building this relationship, we will offer more than double the private lesson opportunities we currently have. In addition to this, we will be connected to more opportunities to partner with them in community events, allowing students to share their talents and love for Christ outside of our campus.

What does this mean for you? If you are interested in participating in our new program, please fill out this interest form.  We are currently working out and solidifying all the details. Nothing will change for TMA families in terms of billing or location. TMA will manage the billing of private lessons, which will be at the same cost they have always been. The only difference is that The Music Box will supply the instructor and the communications regarding the schedule. Each of these instructors comes with a faith-based background and fully agrees with TMA's statement of faith. Not only is this partnership bringing Christians together, but it is also allowing our two groups to serve in the community and share the love of Jesus through our student's passions and talents.
