The PTA had a successful Chalk Festival at the end of September.  Participants were able to "chalk the walk", play lots of fun games, bid on some awesome baskets in the silent auction, and be part of the chalk fight at the end of the night.  A big thank you to everyone who volunteered, donated baskets, and attended the festival!  We have the best PTA!

Art City Fifth-Grade Colonial Day

Submitted by julia.murray on Tue, 10/05/2021 - 14:43

On Friday, September 24th, Fifth-grade classes participated in a “colonial day” to learn about what life would have been like in the original 13 Colonies. They made butter, sewed hats, played games, and wrote with quills and ink. It was a blast trying activities from the 1700s and seeing just how different life is now.
