Many thanks to Ms. Tyler for hosting the 2nd Annual Hillcrest and Sheffield Turkey Trot! Thank you to Officer Miner, Captain Hartnett, and Deputy Chief Cogswell for making sure that our students were safe along the road. A special shout out to all the volunteers that helped with the event! We could not have done it without you!
GMRSD Literacy Night hosted by Hillcrest Elementary School
Many thanks to the Sheffield families and community! We are so grateful for your partnership!
Grade 2 Art with Ms. Castro-Santos
2nd grade artists have been working on fine motor cutting skills and completed their "Me & My Shadow" drawings. This was the big culmination of their first trimester in the Sheffield art room, and it involved drawing skills, cutting, tracing and cutting again. 2nd grade artists have grown by leaps and bounds and their artwork reflects their developing abilities.
Grade 4 Art with Ms. Castro-Santos
4th grade artists have been working on a mixed media scarecrow. They used colored pencils to detail their scarecrows and created a painted and collaged background. Students were able to make use of their individual creativity through designing and drawing their scarecrow.
Grade 5 Art with Ms. Castro-Santos
5th grade students explored color theory and learned about analogous or adjacent color families on the color wheel. They demonstrated their knowledge of color family combinations by blending with chalk pastels in the spaces of their spiderwebs. I love the luminous quality of their drawings!
