Sports Stop - B
We began the week with an exciting visit from a Hoboken artist, Bill Curran, who had just returned from a grant to paint in Maine. Bill brought his paintings and equipment to show the class, and did a demonstration painting with oils of our very own Miss Gabrielle, who posed as his model. Everyone had questions to ask Bill. The students also did their own artwork inspired by Bill. The next day the students learned to do an etching and printed their own greeting cards. Adventuring into sponge printing, the floodgates of creativity have opened!

Biology of Me
Students were very excited about assembling DNA and RNA models with K-nex. Students continued to work on their projects in the computer lab and began work on their posters. They helped each other by giving suggestions and information to complete their at home projects. The highlight of the week was looking at slides of different cells and tissues of the human body. They also viewed slides of different animals, fungus, and beverages.
Reminder that the at home portion of the project is due THIS MONDAY, July 22nd.
