What do Mom's, Muffin's and Math have in Common? Students! Mom's came to Art City Elementary School on Friday March 25, 2016, to eat muffins and do math with their students in the third-grade classes.   The students showed their moms how they could do math while enjoying a muffin.

Teachers were also sitting with students and giving one on one attention and help.  Thank you, moms for taking time out of your busy mornings to come and do math with us.

Have you ever wondered how a yearbook cover is created?  At Art City Elementary, students are invited to submit pictures of what they think the cover should look like; a jury of judges look at all of the pictures and decides what picture should be used.  This year all of the pictures that were submitted were on display in the gym during the "Great Artist" gallery display.  Thank you students for caring for the school and wanting to help create the year book.

A Secret Special Visitor comes To Art City Sixth-grade

Submitted by julia.murray on Tue, 03/22/2016 - 13:46

The 6th grade had quite a surprise this week when Matt Meese of Studio C came to talk with them.  He answered qestions about the show, favorite characters, how they come up with skits and other things.  By the way, his favorite characters to play are "Scott Sterling" and "The Shoulder Angel".  Matt does not usually talk to schools, but we were lucky enough to have his friend, Sabrina Fullmer, as a practicum student in Mrs. Makin's class. He came to us as a friendly favor for her.  THANKS MISS FULLMER!!!!!
