Second-grade students at Art City Elementary, in Springville, on Friday, November 19, 2011, celebrated Thanksgiving by girls wearing dresses and boys wearing white shirts, long socks and they tucked their pant legs into their socks. In the class room the desks were pushed together like long banquet tables. The students had the opportunity to make aprons, hats, satchels, necklaces, and buckles for the boy’s shoes. The students then ate in their classrooms with pilgrims, Indians, parents and Teacher.
Art City Elementary, in Springville, on Friday, November 19, 2012, third-grade students invited their dads, uncles, grandpas, and friends to come eat a donut and read a book. Miss McKell Murdock, third-grade teacher, invited her dad he too read with students. There was a good turn out of “Dad’s” for the donuts. For the students whose dad couldn’t come they shared a dad or took turns reading with another student. The dads stayed for about 20 minutes and seemed to really enjoy this time with their students. Thank you Dads for sharing your time with us.
Art City celebrates Halloween in their class rooms through out the day and then everyone lines the halls to watch as classes march past in their costumes. As they start the First grade starts and walks through the school picking up classes as they go and as they make there way through the school and the Gym for parents to see everyone, the second time through the schools the lines gets smaller as classes go back to their room. Even the office and lunch room ladies get into the act.
What makes you want to SCREAM? In October Miss Murdock's class at Art City Elementary, Springville, wrote about what makes them want to scream. The students studied The Scream by Edvard Munch and used similar colors, lines and movement to create their own watercolors. Using a Digital camera their picture was taken, while re-creating that famous scream face. Their pictures were printed then cut out and glued onto their watercolor painting. Students then wrote about what makes them scream and published their writing in the school computer lab.
