Our art teacher, Seda Sevada began art classes this week. Each class will receive five art lessons over the next two months that will incorporate art history, social studies and other subjects. For their first art lesson, the students drew self portraits that will be part of a large mural in our cafeteria hallway. Each student will have one piece displayed on panels in the cafeteria at our ArtFest in the Spring. Thank you to our PTA and the San Gabriel Educational Foundation (SEF) for sponsoring this program.
Don't forget to join us once a month on the Friday of Spirit and Pride at 8:30am for our Walking School Bus. We meet at the North Del Mar fire station to walk to school as a group. Each student also receives a pencil reward.
On Friday, April 21st, our students showcased their artistic and musical talents at the annual Washington ArtFest. Each grade level performed music on our outdoor stage and every student had artwork displayed on panels in the cafeteria. Throughout the evening students and their families also enjoyed various art activities. Click on the title above for more information and photos.
Recently our 5th graders performed a musical about the American Revolution. Students sang songs that told the history of the American Revolution for an audience of parents and community members. Special thanks to the Assistance League of Arcadia for providing us with a grant to purchase the costumes!
At the end of the year our 4th graders performed the musical "Going West." for our students and parents. It was an exciting way for our students to learn about California history. Click the title above for photos.
