This year has provided us a very different kind of Art class. We have relocated to a computer lab temporarily while our renovation is underway. Very soon we will be back to a new art room with new furniture. I hope to have a renewed energy when we return. We have definitely gotten a good rest after a week off for cold winter weather. We will continue using Google Classroom for our lessons. This is a wonderful platform that allows students to revisit lessons whenever they need them. We have so much to look forward to in 2018. It is going to be a great year.
American poet Celia Thaxter once wrote, “There shall be eternal summer in the grateful heart.”I am grateful to be a part of our wonderful school, and I look forward to working with you whenever you need assistance._____________________________________
