The second graders have been learning about 3-D masks. They looked at West African masks, which are used in celebrations. The students created a 3-D mask celebrating the changing of seasons. Students designed a mask to show a season and added tissue paper “beads.”
Don’t forget! The Spring Fine Arts Night is on March 17th at 5:00. There will be special performances by: Mrs. Skelton’s 2nd grade, Mr. Piercey’s 4th grade, the 5th grade Glee Club, and the Student/Faculty Rock Band. There will be an art presentation and wonderful artwork on display. Come see what Simmons is doing!
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!
