Art and Robots Collide at Avonworth Elementary School
To celebrate Hour of Code week, art teacher, Mrs. Jennifer Faingnaert, and computer science teacher, Mrs. Jana Stahl, collaborated on a project designed to bring programming and the arts together to help students create a unique masterpiece! AES art and computer students joined forces to create action paintings inspired by the famous artist, Jackson Pollock. Students programmed and controlled movements such as various angles, speed, duration, and LED light displays. Pizza boxes were engineered to build bumpers for the artwork. Neon paint was utilized for the artwork, as well as black and white papers to create a glowing masterpiece! This project was a shining representation of how computer science can be integrated into artistic elements to design unique works of art!

Kindergarten Registration is Coming Soon!
Registration for 2020-2021 kindergarten will open on January 2, 2020.
Starting kindergarten can make both parents and students a bit nervous. With that in mind, Avonworth Primary Center has a model program to help ease students and parents into kindergarten. Kindergarten Round-Up will be the first event for parents and students entering kindergarten in 2020 and will take place on the evening of March 5 from 6:30-8:00 in the Avonwroth Primary cafeteria. Mark your calendars! We can't wait to see you and begin your kindergarten journey!
