Art City Elementary students have been busy all year learning about different artists and art techniques.  Each student chose their favorite piece of art and it was displayed in the Gym during the family night of the Book Fair in March.  Students who visited the "Art Gallery" created chalk pictures, played games, and had a chance to have their faces painted.  Thank you parents and PTA for all of your help in putting on such a magnificent gallery.

Mrs. Morgan's Kindergarten class had the opportunity to draw and color a self portrait.  Mrs. Morgan said, "I use it mostly to reinforce how even though we all have two eyes, a nose, a mouth, two ears, etc. no one looks just like us—we are all unique.  One of our social studies standards is to recognize differences and have respect for each individual.  We used mirrors to look at the colors and shapes of our features.  I taught them how to use shapes to form their faces and shoulders.  Then we used oil pastels to color our portraits.  We also used this poem:

Fifth and Second-Grade radKIDs Simulation

Fifth and second-grade students from Art City Elementary school, Springville, on Friday February 6 and 22, 2015, were confronted by a ‘Bad Person’.  Students are taught to say “Stay Back you’re not my dad (or mom)” when someone they don't know approaches them.  During a simulation the students have an opportunity to practice what they have learned.  They go through two scenarios where one they get to say "No" to an adult and another they are wrapped up by someone dressed in red or black pads and the students can use all of the techniques learned in their radKIDs Safety Empowerment class to
