NEWS FROM THE ART ROOM ~ MRS. KUHN

The students are busily working on 2-Dimensional and 3-Dimensional art projects. All grade levels are learning about the influences other countries play in their artwork, such as Italy, Russia, Mexico, Spain, China and Japan just to name a few.


Fifth grade art club is in full swing. I am appreciative of each student's talents as we work in smaller groups.

40 BOOK CHALLENGE - FEBRUARY BONUS

Any student who reads 10 books toward the "40 Book Challenge" AND completes a raffle ticket AND turns the ticket in to the office by February 28 will receive one free food item at the Fun Fair concession on March 13. Students will be notified and their names will be listed in the cafeteria the day/night of the Fun Fair. When students go through the line during the Fun Fair, they will choose a food item.


Students who turn in the raffle tickets before February 21 will still be eligible for the end of the trimester drawing for gift cards from Culver's, Read Between the Lynes, and Classic Cinemas. This drawing will be done on February 21st.
