Tonight we had a fun event at the girls’ school called The Art & Learning Palooza. Formally called, The Ice Cream Social, but that sounds more like a Nursing Home Event rather than an Elementary school so they had to “jazz-it-up” a bit. This is a fun night where the kids get to show off some of their art projects/school projects that they have been working on for some time. Megan’s grade made ‘state floats’ in which each student chose a state, did research, made an informational poster, and then designed a float to represent their state. Megan chose the beautiful state of Colorado. She made the Rocky Mountains out of sugar cones and had cotton on top for the snow. Pretty cool.
Kelly’s grade made clay animals. She chose the Prairie Dog. The Minnesota Zoo has Prairie Dogs and they are the cutest little things that are always ‘popping’ out of their holes and eating as fast as they can. They always seem to be on the lookout for enemies.
Megan also sang in the Hidden Valley Choir. We were so surprised at how well these kids sounded. The group is made up of fourth, fifth and sixth graders. They were very impressive. Nice job Megs! Well that’s the update for this week in school.
