Grand Forks Public Schools 2014 Summer Performing Arts (SPA) for Middle School What is Middle School SPA? Middle School SPA is designed for students currently enrolled in grades 6 and 7 in 2013-14. It is a four-week, workshop-style program in drama, movement, vocal music, and tech. This program is designed to promote a greater awareness of the performing arts, and enrich creativity among the students.
