Happy New Year!

I am so excited to begin a new school year. With the new year comes new energy, new ideas, and new adventures.

As we begin the school year, several Art Clubs will be starting almost immediately, so please be on the lookout for permission forms in Tuesday folders. You can find a description of each club within this newsletter.

Bottle Caps are Back!

Last year we collected thousands of bottle caps to be used for a special project. This fall, we will finally make that project happen! We will be making large bottle cap mosaic flowers that will surround the gazebo near the playground. Stay posted for more details and in the meantime, please continue to send in COLORFUL plastic bottlecaps!

5th grade Art Club

Art Club is a time for students who are enthusiastic about art to explore and experiment in the art room. Students will participate in challenging projects and use unique materials.

5th grade Art Club begins Wednesday, September 9th. Red permission forms were sent home with all 5th graders in Tuesday folders on September 1st. Students will be admitted on a first come, first served basis.

Photography Club Start this Fall!

The Bel Air Photography Club is an opportunity for students in 4th and 5th grade to learn how to take and edit digital photographs.
