Up coming Events:
News from our Art a la Carte Chairs; Liz Worley & Meredith Hanna:
Art a la Carte is fast approaching! It’s Friday, April 19, and as you may know, this PTA event requires a lot of parent help to pull off.
This year’s Art a la Carte theme is RE-Art (for recycled art). The kids will have three terrific projects to work on:
- Wood sculptures. The kids have been creating wood sculptures from scraps, a la Louise Nevelson, during art class for the past week or two. On the day of AALC, they’ll get those sculptures back and paint them.
- Bottle cap necklaces or magnets. Kids will decorate bottle caps with sequins, pom-poms, stickers, etc. They can either make a necklace from their creation, a bracelet, or a backpack dangly.
- Rain sticks. Kids will make a rain stick from a sturdy cardboard tube by pouring gravel into a tube already prepped with chicken wire. Then they’ll decorate the outside of the stick.
If you’re available to help during a three-hour shift, please email Liz Worley at firstname.lastname@example.org. Grades 3-5 will be going through Art a la Carte between 8:00-11:15. Grades K-2 will be the afternoon shift, from 11:45-2:40. WE NEED VOLUNTEERS!
We’ll be working with washable paint, glue, glitter, and other fun stuff! So please remember to send your student to school that day in clothes that it’s OK to get a little dirty!
Thank you for your time,
Hidden Forest Elementary
