Meagan Brown visited Miss Coffman’s first grade class here at Art City!  She came and read a book called, "Trombone Shorty" and then played the French horn for the class. It was so fun to learn about different instruments!  Meagan is Miss Coffman's Sister.

April Fools Day

Mrs. Thompson's and Mrs. Roylance's second grade classes had a National Foot Check Day on April 1st.   A doctor was "scheduled" to come to Art City to check our 2nd grader's feet to make sure they were growing correctly.  The students cleaned their feet really well for the doctor!!  They were surprised to find out it was a fun April Fools Day trick!

In February, to celebrate Valentine's Day, the fifth grade classes enjoyed an old fashioned, 50's style Sock Hop.  Students had so much fun learning the hand jive, hula hooping, taking pictures and having a bubblegum blowing contest.  Thank you so much to the parent volunteers for all your help with this activity!
