Edgar Degas is the star of our art appreciation! Students are learning that Degas was born in Paris France to a wealthy family. He was inspired to sketch and paint but when beginning he painted mostly what he saw when he visited museums on the many trips he took with his father. Then while in art school he was given some life changing advice to be his own artist and create his own art not what others create. He took this advice to heart and carried a sketch pad everywhere he went drawing the everything that he observed people doing activities like brushing their hair, or taking a dance class. Edgar Degas is such an inspiring artist for our students because he reinforces what you can accomplish when you think and create for yourself.
Students have begun creating dancers inspired by Degas "The Little Dancer", designing dancing tutus using watercolors
Miss Mary from Open Studio arrived for our second Pottery Workshop painting our self-portrait clay pieces! They are coming out fabulous!
The learning labs where centered around our students working on science, fine motor and sensory exploration. We have been engaged in many science activities that help in developing observation, recording, and prediction. Fine motor using tweezers, and scoops to transfer objects to build prewriting skills.

Junior Kindergarten Program at TerraNichol Academy
We are now preparing for open enrollment for our Junior Kindergarten program for school year 2016-2017.
Our Junior Kindergarten Program was developed in 2010 based on the feedback from our parents already attending our program. Parents and Educators sometimes feel preschoolers still need time to grow and mature and feel that they will benefit from an extra year before entering elementary school. Others may just miss the Kindergarten cut off date and this program allows for those students to participate and be challenged in the junior kindergarten program. Admissions and the enrollment process will start February 1st, 2016. The deadline will be April 1st, 2016. We will open up 12 spaces for this program.
To be considered for the program:
1. Registration Form and fee must be submitted to TerraNichol Academy by April 1, 2016.(Applications submitted without the non-refundable registration fee will not be considered.)
2. Parents will renew their parent agreement & contract to make a commitment for the school year.
3. The Students 5th birthday must be before August 1st, 2016 or the student would be eligible for Kindergarten in the public school for the 2016-2017 school year.
4. Parents make a commitment to participate in school- to- home projects taking place throughout the school year.
