Piano Key Behavior
At St. Rose of Lima Catholic we try to do our very best.  When the class follows the rules and make great decisions, the class receives a "piano key" on the clip chart.  When the end of the piano is reached an art or music related reward activity happens!

Where is the Art?
Students will create art throughout the year; one 30 minute class per week.  Every month a grade is selected to be featured at CRONKS restaurant in Denison, IA located on Hwy 30.  Students are learning about a digital gallery called Artsonia.  There they can post a photo of the piece and make comments. This digital gallery is only viewable if the parent/guardian gives permission on the site.  See blog for details.  In March we will display all art at an art show.  Details are still being worked out.  Volunteers are needed to help set up in the Parish Center in March.  Students will take works of art home in May.

Miss Jennifer Rau

I received my Bachelor's in Music Education from Drake University.  Go Bulldogs!  I am originally from Defiance, IA and graduated IKM in 2003.  I began my career teaching 5-12 band, then in 2014 I returned to western Iowa to St. Rose of Lima Catholic in Denison where I currently teach music and art.  I also teach at IKM-Manning, PreK-3 General Music. I was recommended to teach elementary art classes in 2015 and I love inspiring children to do their best, encouraging perseverance, and bringing the beauty God made in our world to the classroom.

I enjoy gardening at my home in Irwin, Iowa, baking, backpacking, rock climbing, sailing, reading, and playing guitar at the lake.
