Message from the Art Room:

Hello Wonderful Parents!


We will be doing two 'Legacy Projects' with the 5th grade. If you have a 5th grade remote learner, please pick up two kits from the box at the front of the school marked '5th Grade Art Projects' after 3:30 on Wednesday. They clay project will be completed during art class on May 20th and 21st and the rock project on May 25th and 26th. One project is a clay tile which will be installed at the school permanently. The other is a painted rock which will be displayed in a special rock garden. Both projects will be added to each year by the outgoing 5th grade class.


The whole school quilt project kits will also be out there as well for all remote learners to get. These projects will be displayed at the beginning of next school year. Please note the quilt squares will be assembled on a different day than the rest of the school for 5th grade.


Returning Projects for distance learners:

  1. Clay Project: Please return in one layer to the boxes in the front of the school on Friday after 3:30. I will pick them up by 6:00 and check again on Saturday morning in case anyone drops off later than that.
  2. Rocks and Quilt Project: These may be returned at any time to the Art Turn in bin in front of the school.
