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!

Google Art Project

Note to  Parents: You should visit online museum galleries with your children, some artworks might not be appropriate. 

Google has a new website called Art Project.  This website has virtual tours of famous art museums from around the world.  You can see the famous artworks you would see in Italy, Spain, or New York!  This website allows visitors to have a museum experience without the travel.  If you find an interesting artwork, you can click on it to get a closer look and to learn more about it.
