Sweet Art

As part of the integration into art history and pop art, we’re going to explore the art of Wayne Thiebaud. (pronounced Tee-bow).


Mr. Thiebaud used sweet treats as the subject of many of his paintings.

For this activity: Your goal is to create a piece of “sweet” art that is inspired by Wayne Thiebaud. It could be a cake, a slice of pie, a favorite candy, or some other sweet confection. Your choice!!


1. It needs to be a sweet treat of some kind.

2. It needs to be colored.

Happy Birthday World! Earth Day!

On April 22nd this year, we are celebrating the 50th anniversary of Earth Day.

There will be a live sing-along of “Happy Birthday World.” We will join students from all over the world for this event. With the isolation that we are all experiencing and Earth Day's 50th anniversary coming up, this seems like a really cool opportunity!

Here are lyrics and an Mp3 file for you. If you’d like to, go ahead and learn the song, so when April 22 comes along, you can sing along!

Phys. Ed/ Health


With your parents help and/or permission, measure out a 1 mile walk/jog/run. If you don’t have a mile, measure your driveway or around the house it really doesn’t matter. If you have a small circuit or driveway figure out the math involved.

There are 5,280 feet in one mile. For example if your driveway is 100 feet long in one direction you would have to down and back about 26 1/2 times….yikes!!!

Try and find a little longer loop or “track” and it will be much easier to count your “laps”. Your goal should be to try and improve your time a little bit each week. It’s easy in the beginning but gets harder and harder as you improve. Record your times each time you run and have fun with it. Try and get out 2-3 times each week!

Technology/Library - Check out Wonderopolis!

Check out Wonderopolis - Where the Wonders of Learning Never Cease!! Each day they pose a different question, then explore to discover the answer!

Recent examples are: What is a Kinkajou? (Wonder#2554). How much does the sky weigh?(Wonder#1065).

Have a burning question you want answered? You can post a question to their Wonder Bank!!
