Welcome Back, Scholars!

Mrs. Bridges and I can’t wait to see all of our artists!  We hope your family had a wonderful summer break.   We are looking forward to a great year, continuing the tradition of kicking off the year with our Square One Art fundraiser, and celebrating our artists at the end of the year with a Spring Art Show.  More information to come on both of these exciting events!

Volunteer Opportunities

If you are interested in helping out as a volunteer in the art rooms, please contact us.  It could be once a month or once a week, whenever it fits in to your schedule.  We often have copying, laminating, and putting up/taking down displays that we could use help with.    We would welcome you as our ART ROOM MOM, ART ROOM DAD, or ART ROOM GRANDPARENT!  You DO need to be a registered volunteer.

Art Club Information

Art Club will meet once a week, on Wednesday mornings before school.  During the first semester, fifth grade Art Club members will be selected and will meet weekly until winter break.  After winter break, fourth grade Art Club members will be selected and will meet weekly until the end of the year.  If you have a 5th grader interested in joining, see and print the attached Art Club Application.  The completed application is due on or before August 22.  The application can be accessed via this website, the parent newsletter, or a hard copy can be obtained from Mrs. Parris or the fifth grade teachers.

(4th graders will get information about their art club just prior to winter break.)

Miscellaneous

Please note what day of the week your child has art class, and have them dress appropriately.  You are welcome to send your child to school with a smockon art days, if you are worried about their clothes.  We hope to see you at Open House, where we will have information available about our curriculum, behavior expectations, and grading policies.  All of this information is also posted on this art department website.   Additionally, there is information about units of study, local art exhibit information, displays and contest information, and links to fun and educational art websites!
