Charles Leech, K-12 Director of Fine Arts
Message from the Department Director
Welcome to the Babylon Schools Fine Arts Department Webpage. This webpage will provide students, families, and the community, with a greater understanding and awareness of the music program in our schools. Included on the sidebar are sub-pages with useful information.
Being involved in the visual and performing arts is a valuable experience for all children. The intrinsic values the arts possess can be transferred to many other areas of our life outside of school. The arts help develop fine-motor skills, self-discipline, build upon collaborative skills, improve listening and communication skills, as well as build self-confidence and further imagination through creativity.
It is our goal to give our students a well-rounded arts education that looks to develop the social, emotional, and academic needs of our students. It is also our goal that our students gain a deeper appreciation of art and music so that they may continue to have both an understanding and love of music for the rest of their lives.
Yours in the Arts,
K-12 Director of Fine Arts
