Last Week At Advantage Arts Academy

During PE last week students worked on TEAMWORK and CREATIVE SKILLS and made obstacle courses! Kindergarten to Second Grade was tasked with different movements through out their obstacle courses. Third grade to sixth grade was divided into groups and asked to create an obstacle course that flowed and made sense.

Birthday Table

One day each month we will have a BIRTHDAY TABLE in the lunchroom. During lunchtime each month the students with birthdays during that month will be directed to the birthday table to pick up a birthday treat. This month we will be celebrating August and September birthdays! Birthday Table this month will be THIS WEDNESDAY, September 22nd.

Center Stage

1st Grade Self-portraits

In first grade we have been learning about being a good citizen. We made self-portraits to help us remember how we can be a good first grader by being respectful, kind, and trying our best. We used lots of different materials to make our portraits and we think they turned out amazingly!

2nd Grade Creates Camouflage

In second grade we have been learning about how an animal's size, shape, and color can help them survive in different environments. For our project, we are making a patterned background and then we will try to camouflage an animal into the background using a similar pattern. We can't wait to see how these turn out!
