Mr. LaFosse is an internationally renowned origami master. The Louvre and the Peabody Essex Museum are among the many museums where his work has been exhibited. Mr. LaFosse begins his program by showing the students extraordinary examples of his art. Then he proceeds to relate origami to the subject area that teachers have chosen including elementary mathematics, geometry, biology, zoology, history, and cultural topics.
The Creative Arts and Sciences Committee (CASC) implements curricular-related programs at elementary and middle schools in Newton. The PTOs at each school fund these programs. The programs align with Newton curricula, the Massachusetts’ curricular frameworks, system-wide goals, and core values. Programs enhance Art, English/ Language Arts, History, Social Studies, Music, Physical Education, and Science curricula.
