Today the students in Mrs. Cooke's third grade class got a surprise in art. The author and illustrator Ethan Long was visiting Windsor and decided to make an appearance in the art room to offer some inspiration. He demonstrated for students how he draws the characters for his stories.
Mrs. Hiltz stopped by the art room today and tweeted our awesome creations! Visit the Third Grade section of my blog to find out more! https://twitter.com/WindsorWildcats/status/657626129063395328/photo/1
4th grade art club has been busy coming up with ideas of what to paint on Windsor's walls. The focus is "Wildcat Way," adding small reminders throughout the building painted on the walls to keep everyone on track for doing their best. The planning stage for these murals is almost done, so stay tuned for when the real work starts happening!
4th grade art club starts this week. A note was sent home Friday informing the students who were selected. If you were chosen to be in art club session 2, you will receive your note today. Happy Monday!
This Friday I will be sending home art club permission slip forms for 4th grade only. Students do not have to participate in art club if they do not want to. This year the art club is "The Wildcat Way Monumental Mural Club," and will be held in the fall and winter (two sessions). The details of the club are included on the permission forms. If you have any questions feel free to email me.
In my classroom I have PTA Reflections forms if students wish to take one and enter the contest. Here is a link providing more information: http://windsorpta.org/2015/08/27/reflections-2015-entry-form/
I hope that each and everyone of you is enjoying the beginning of summer so far. There was so much going on at the end of the year at Windsor, I hope that your child shared some of that with you. If you have not heard about it yet, or have not seen it, Windsor's very own Little Library is up and running! Make sure you stop by Windsor at some point this summer to see what the fantastic library has to offer! Art Club did such a wonderful job decorating it.
