Studio Hours Thursday October 19

I will be staying after school this Thursday (October 19) from 3-4:30 for any students who have missing or incomplete work and need access to materials. A few students are behind on projects and we are moving ahead. I have given extra time in class to complete these projects (as deadlines have already passed), but as we are working on new projects, there will no longer be class time given for these past incomplete projects.

If any work is incomplete, I strongly suggest students attend Studio hour this week, or make arrangements with me to come during lunch to complete work as we are more than half way done with this quarter and report cards will be rapidly approaching.

In addition, if any work was taken home to be worked on, I do need these back by this Friday (October 20) to grade.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me.

Thank you!

September Updates

What a wonderful start to this school year! It has been a pleasure getting to meet all my new (and returning) students these past few weeks. I can already tell it is going to be an awesome 2017-2018 school year!!

-If you haven't already done so, please have your child return the signed copy of the Donors Choose Permission Slip. They were sent home during the first week of school in the information packets from my classroom. We have extra copies in the classroom, and you can download additional copies here.

-Please update your email addresses listed in Power School. Email is the easiest way to contact me, and to keep the means of communications opened between school and home for updates on personal matters and grades for students.

-Extra Credit for September is due by the end of the school day on Friday October 6. New extra credit will be posted on our class Instagram page on October 1.

End of July Update

I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer- it's crazy to think that school will be starting again in about a month! I noticed many stores are having great sales for back to school supplies, so it may be a  perfect time to start thinking about class supply lists:

1) Pencils
2) Handheld Erasers
3) Sketchbook (no lines, plain white paper) approx. size 8.5"x11" *if you have your sketchbook from last year, you do not need a new one*
4) Colored Pencils
5) Handheld Pencil Sharpener
6) Colored Markers (Thin and Thick)
7) Sharpie Marker (Black, Thin and Thick)

We have several projects posted on Donors Choose to get necessary supplies for projects this year. Please consider donating to our classroom page and PLEASE SHARE OUR LINK on your social media page! Our Donors Choose projects are updated periodically throughout the school year.

In addition to our Donors Choose Page, I have various items that we would like for our classroom (from cleaning supplies, to paper and furniture to name a few) on our class' Amazon Wishlist. Please consider donating items from our wish list (whether purchased through Amazon or not).
This wish list will also be updated periodically throughout the school year.

Enjoy the remaining weeks of summer vacation, I look forward to seeing everyone at the start of the 2017-2018 school year :-)

Students in grade 6 are starting "Trash Fashion" in art 100 which they will be working on until the end of the year. The students are designing and then creating outfits out of recycled materials. The students are re-purposing items that would normally been thrown away to create them.

If anyone is willing to save their “clean” trash for us, I would deeply appreciate it.
We are looking for pretty much anything, as long as it is free from food debris. :-)

Plastic Shopping Bags
Used Gift Wrap
Plastic Table Cloths
Plastic Containers from Salad, Spinach, etc
Coffee Cups (Styrofoam, Plastic)
Milk Jugs
Random Items (puzzle pieces, cds, fishnet materials)
