Masks

The fifth grade have been working on making papíer maché masks.  They have been studying West African cultures and we learned that masks were often worn during dances and celebrations.  West African Cultures often showed animals on their masks, hoping that the wearer would have that animal’s special qualities.

Murals

In February, all K-5 classes participated in painting murals illustrating four content areas: math, science, language arts, and social studies.  The  students were involved at every step, including drawing, painting, and finishing the murals with a clear coat. I am so proud of all the students who worked very hard to help complete the murals. We are so thankful for the support of the Specials team, the PTA, Mr. Caudill, Mrs. Goh and Mrs. Mogge.  They helped make the murals possible.

We look forward to more mural painting experiences!
