Dear Thacher Families:
We are full of pride at Thacher this week. We were VERY well represented at Tuesday evening's A Night to Discover at Attleboro High School with students from Mrs. Gordon's second grade class and Ms. Marcotte's 4th grade class presenting to attendees. This morning, we hosted our monthly Panda Pride assembly where 4th grade/Downstairs 3rd grade won the Golden Plunger and 2nd grade won the Golden Spork and students on Bus 26 won our "Give a Hoot About Your Route" (ask your child(ren) what these are awarded for!). Our first graders also hosted a celebration of community helpers. Please see below for photos of just a sampling of those wonderful events.
Don't forget to move your clocks an hour ahead this weekend!

This Week in Art
We've been very busy creating in the Art room this month! Square One Artwork is complete and has been submitted to the company for printing. The PTO will handle the ordering and distribution and will be in contact with Thacher Families in the next few months. Here are a few of the projects we've been working on lately...
~ Kindergarten created a Rainbow Mosaic
~ First grade used painted lines to create Amazing Abstract Art. They also finished a Winter Village Collage.
~ Second graders learned about the Artist, Piet Mondrian, and created a Modern Art Masterpiece using the primary colors along with vertical & horizontal lines. They also made Warm & Cool Winter Hat Patterns.
~ Third grade artists made realistic Winter Tree Paintings and also wrote a creative Snow Poem to go with it. They just began a lesson on how to make a Japanese Koi Carp Kite, and will use watercolor paint.
~ Fourth Grade Artists learned about the artistic and cultural traditions of textile design as well as symbolislm in art. They created a colorful Serape Paper Weaving.
