Happy New Year!!

Hi All,

Our first art show for the 2014 school year was a major success.  We had a number of students art work displayed at the Suffolk Peanut Fest.  We received a number of wonderful comments about our talented students. This school year, we are planning to work on even bigger and better art projects. Our goal in the art department is to stimulate our students thinking all while helping them relax and express themselves by means of art. Please look for information in our newsletter regarding upcoming art events.

We cannot be taking time out of our instructional day, but can send home treat bags as students leave for the buses. If you would like to send in any items, I will make sure they are bagged and ready to send home next Friday. Please do not send any open items as we can’t distribute them.

Thanks for all you do at home to help your child at school.
