Merryhill Millcreek Celebrates 2016-2017 school year!

A year in review

It has been a fun filled year of learning and improving our creative abilities in Art class. We have explored new techniques, revisited and improved our skills and learned more about art from the past to the present. Here is a sampling of what we did this year. For more art to look at go to our site on Artsonia, I look forward to the new school year. See you all in the 2017-2018 school year. - Mrs. Howell

2nd Grade PBL - What is a solar system and who is there only life on Earth?

Visit our exciting display in the Tech Lab this month! 2nd grade has been very busy this spring learning about the solar system. As apart of this activity fictional writing was included. Students enjoyed writing stories which included aliens to tell us why their character could live on a specific planet based on what they researched. They painted pictures, made prints, created t-shirts and made planet displays.
