Last Week At Advantage Arts Academy

LAST WEEK WE REVISITED LUNCHROOM AND RECESS RULES AND EXPECTATIONS. Check with your students and see if they know and understand what is expected of them so everyone can continue to enjoy their time in the lunchroom and at recess.

PICTURES WERE SENT OUR THIS WEEK. If you did not receive pictures for your student contact the front office. Picture Retake Day is November 5th.

Last Friday in kindergarten they made Otters for the letter "O" and this last week they did gumball math!

Get Involved

Our Goal is to have every family volunteer 10 hours this year and participate in helping with some of our planned events!

We are looking for volunteers with tiling experience that could help install a tile mural that the students worked on last year. The mural will be indoors and is about 8'x5'. If you or someone you know could help with the tools and installation please contact the art teacher, Mrs. Redd at

Our First Event is Advantage Arts Academy's Fall Carnival on October 28th. Each Grade Level will be reaching out to parents for candy and prize donations.

Center Stage

Kinder Builds A Community

In Kindergarten we have been learning about the different places in our community. Students designed and decorated a building that is part of the community, like a house, restaurant, school, gas station, police station, or hospital. Next week we will make our buildings stand up and put them together to create a class community. We've been practicing our cutting and gluing skills throughout this project.

2nd Grade Creates Camouflage

In second grade we finished up our camouflaged creature project. Can you find the creatures blending into the background in these pictures? The students loved getting to create a pattern with oil pastels and then trying to blend their creature into the background.

4th Grade Buffalo Hide Paintings

In fourth grade we learned about the American Indians that live in Utah. We looked at examples of artworks from American Indian culture, including petroglyphs and buffalo hide paintings. Often, buffalo hide paintings told a story or a person's history, so we made our own paintings based on that style. We crumpled up brown paper to make it look like a buffalo hide and designed different symbols to help tell our own life history. This project was a lot of fun and helped us develop new skills.
