Students Volunteer for Una Vida
Jose Villegas says "I think community service is a great experience. You learn how to deal with real life problems. You also have to be leader and show people you are there to work and not mess around. People will then look up to you and follow your footsteps. I think it is something great that Ms. Moquette has done for the community. To organize this is crazy, especially during a whole pandemic. Props to her!"

Alebrijes in Spanish Native/Heritage Speakers and Multi-Cultural Lit
by Mrs. Burroughs
“Alebrijes, Alebrijes, Alebrijes!” Every animal was shouting louder and louder. While Pedro Linares was in bed, unconscious with a high fever, he dreamed he was walking in a strange place resembling a forest. Suddenly, rocks, clouds, and animals turned into bizarre creatures; he saw a donkey with butterfly wings, a rooster with bull horns, a lion with an eagle head, and they were shouting the word: “Alebrijes”.
Instead of celebrating the Day of the Dead (“muy triste” for the circumstances surrounding this year), my students from Spanish Native/Heritage Speakers and Multi-Cultural Lit classes researched the biography of Pedro Linares, (1906-1992), learned about the festivities surrounding Alebrijes, and created their own Alebrije. My students were excited about learning about this famous Mexican artisan and his world-renowned Alebrijes. The students said that they saw the Alebrijes in the movie Coco, but now they know how the Alebrijes originated. Here are some of my students’ artwork.
I used 10 types of lines, some of them are Spiral, Interrupted, Curving. I think what my strengths are was shading in the shaded parts and making the shoe. It was difficult to draw but also kind of easy because I was able to add in as much detail I can to make it look a bit realistic.
I used ten different types of line patterns. I used Vertical, Horizontal, Converging, Interrupted, Zig zag, Curving, S-curve, Parallel, Spiral, and Thick lines. My strength in this drawing was definitely the shoe, because I love drawing objects that I love in my life, and I love shoes and just fashion in general.
Some of the line patterns that I chose to use was the cross-hatching as you can see it covers the whole shoe to add design. There is also cross-hatching by the laces to darken up the shoe a little bit. Some strengths that I had while I was making the shoe was the design and how straight my lines were while making it.
I started drawing with the shoe first, then drew the outer part. I used parallel, zig zag, and curving. I like the mid, left part of the artwork where I drew a zig zag pattern besides the curved pattern.
I started my shoe project by doing the border. I used mostly organic shapes and line designs. I think my strength was on the line design. My weakness was drawing the shoe way too low and I have a lot of empty space. If I could redo it, the only thing I would change is make the shoe higher.

Miss Suzy's dog celebrated Halloween as an Ewok.
Ms. Volmer was an Ewok for Halloween, too!
Ms. McGarry took the recommendation to wear a mask very seriously!
