Message from the Principal

Dear Advantage Arts Family,

We made it to the end of January! This "Kindness Week" has been great. I have loved watching the students dress up each day and find ways to be more kind to one another. I have watched as students have written kind notes to others, opened doors for their peers, and looked for opportunities to serve around the school. We truly have an amazing school.

Please remind your student(s) how great they are. Enrollment time is in full swing. Remember to ask the office how you can enter to win an Apple TV. We are excited to see all of the wonderful people join the Advantage Arts Family.

Sincerely,

Mr. Kano

Last Week At Advantage Arts Academy

This week one of our 4th Grade classes had the opportunity to read to one of 2nd Grade and 1st Grade Classes! These 4th Graders took their leadership roles very seriously and the 2nd Grade and 1st Graders were so incredibly happy to be working with these amazing older students.

Center Stage

Kindergarten Alphabet Art

In kindergarten we are reviewing the letters in the alphabet and incorporating them into our artwork. We looked at the artist, Jasper Johns' artwork to get inspiration because he often put letters and numbers in his artwork. We wrote out the letters and traced them with oil pastel. Next week we will paint all of the rectangles in different colors.

1st Grade Kindness Books

In honor of kindness week, first grade made a small kindness book. They filled in two sentences about being kind and then illustrated them. It was great to hear their responses as to why they are kind and how they show kindness.

2nd Grade Measurement Gardens

In second grade we are learning about how to measure with a ruler. We used the centimeter side to measure out different sizes of stems and cut them out of green paper. Then we drew a flower head on top. We worked on filling our gardens with at least five flowers that all had different sized stems that we measured out.

After School Clubs
