End of the Year BBQ

The Mall-ard Diner was open for business on Friday. We had parents and children enjoying a delicious BBQ lunch together.Thanks you parents (moms and dads) for sending in all of the needed food and supplies and a special thanks to the dads for cooking up a storm. The kids said it was "the best day ever" and we surely do agree. The Mall-ard Diner will be closing in two short weeks but the memories will last a lifetime!

May Happenings at the Diner

Cultural Arts Week - 2013

We have many traditions at our school and we are right in the middle of one called "Cultural Arts Week."  This is the time when student's Art work is displayed throughout the school which includes sculptures, self portraits, and photos. The portrait above was completed in Art class by Anna and is representative of the techniques of  line, form, and function learned in a formal Art class. This is why having these types of resources are so important to a child's education. 
Also during Cultural Arts Week, students enjoy an assembly of varying cultural arts media. This week we had an artist that drew to music, dancers,  and a puppet master.  Tomorrow is a visit from the children's author Kevin O'Malley and on Friday we have the Fletcher Middle School Band. The week ends Friday night with "Arts Extravaganza" where parents and children are invited back to school to see their child's art work displayed in the halls and have fun on some interactive arts and crafts.
