News from Mrs. Parson, our Amazing Art Teacher
Welcome back to Art Class, Eaton Families!!
We are already off to an exciting start to the year in the art room. I will once again be posting our art projects on Artsonia, which not only lets us share the artwork with friends and relatives far away but also offers us a wonderful way to earn funds for the art program through customized keepsakes. Next week students will be bringing home permission slips with instructions on how to connect to Artsonia online. Since many of you will be learning about the Artsonia gallery for the first time this year, please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or, if you need information on your child's gallery. (If you signed up last year you don’t have to sign up again.) I look forward to working with your children and am always impressed and amazed to see how they grow, change and create over the course of the school year. I hope that you enjoy all the masterpieces that the 2021-2022 school year will bring!
