“Specials” at Bauder is referred to as Encore because we feel that Art, Music, PE, and Technology are the “encore” to our core subject areas. We value our arts programming with 100% fully staffed and fully certified teachers in their field. We feel that our Encore classes enrich a student’s academic world and therefore is justified as a part of “Academic Enrichment”.
The arts are integrated into each grade level as much as possible, but we also hold an Encore Night for 4th and 5th graders every other year to highlight the arts.
- Our Bauder Encore program culminates in 4th and 5th grade with our largest event at Rocky Mountain High School. This extravaganza is the event of the year. It involves all four Encore teachers and all eight classroom teachers in 4th and 5th grades. It is truly a showcase of Bauder talent and is an event that cannot be missed.
Throughout the year, each Encore area has various events that enhance the academics taught in the classroom. You'll find a few of these opportunities and events on the art, music, media & technology and physical education pages.
