News from the Classroom

To request a current report, please contact the Student Services Coordinator, Sunni Kelty at 502-639-6748.


Library: The Pre-K, Kindergarten, and 1st grade are talking about fairy tales and how they are different than other books this week. The 2nd and 3rd grades are learning about the Dewey Decimal System and the 4th, 5th, and middle grades are finishing up our unit on research skills.


SPD: The 4th, 5th, and middle school classes enjoyed lessons with hockey this week. The Pre-K and Kindergarten enjoyed a new exercise CD, and the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades took the PE challenge.


8th grade: Working on a personal message project, their choice of medium. They are either doing ceiling tiles for the upper floor or ceramic tiles.

7th grade: Printing motifs. Began with a crayon rub of a texture print. Next a foam print on 3 x 3 inch mat board. Last, printing using soft cut rubber. They use cutting tools to create a print motif in four colors which they will print on a 12 x 12 inch square.

6th grade: Cubism: doing presentations to prepare them for their clay project, a cubist portrait. Should be interesting.

5th grade: Clay - creating a sculpture of a person from the neck up (called a bust).

4th grade: Clay - making a portrait relief. A relief is a sculptural piece of art that is intended to be view from one side, like a plaque. They are using subtractive method to create the face.

3rd grade: Just completed glazing their organic sculptures of clay.

2nd grade: Finished their landscape painting project. Will begin clay this week.

1st grade: Glazed their pinch pots. Began a lesson on symmetry today where objects are cut out, arranged and glued in a balanced way to show symmetry.

Kindergarten: Finished their Wegman Weimaraners. In the tradition of William Wegman, who costumes Weimaraner dogs, the Kindergarten watched a video of these silly dogs and then glued printed pictures of their heads to paper and drew a costume for them. They are a riot!

Pre K: Made kites and Easter eggs. The kites still need string attached and the Easter eggs were used on the bulletin board across from the Pre K room.
