    The American Heart Association would like to send a big “Thank You” to all students who raised money through the Jump Rope for Heart Program.  All students who have earned rewards for their donations will receive those awards in early March after all donations have been tabulated by the American Heart Association.  We would like to congratulate Emma Watson and Paityn Chasko who each raised over $300 for the American Heart Association.  As a school we raised $2,426.  Way to go Broncos!
    The weather is beautiful so far this early spring, make sure you are getting outside to play for at least 60 minutes per day.  Regular exercise and eating right are key to growing up healthy and having academic success!

    Can you believe the first part of our school year is already over!?  I want to take a brief moment to say thank you to all of our parents, teachers, staff members, administrators and students for your contributions, hard work, dedication and time for the first part of the school year!  We had wonderful success with a hoppin’ 50s Day and 4th Grade Bandstand performance, a beautiful 5th Grade Patriotic Tribute to our Veterans, a gobblin’ great feast and First Thanksgiving performance by our Kindergarteners, and a precious musical rendition of ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas by our 1stGraders.  Our Bronco Chorale had the wonderful opportunity to Christmas carol and bring Christmas cheer to a nursing home in December, and will now begin preparing for Disney’s Peter Pan, Jr.  This next semester will be just as busy…there is so much to learn and do in our music program!  I look forward to our upcoming events and will keep you posted!

    Experiencing Art 

    The Core Concepts and Skills

    Grades K-2                                                                      
    The students in grades K-2 are learning how to draw animal faces. The theme in the art room is “BIG FACES, DISTANT PLACES.” Just like a camera can zoom in for an up close shot we are focusing on the faces of cats, wolves, dogs, zebras, elephants, cheetahs, chimpanzees , and big cats to name a few. By looking for simple geometric shapes like circles, squares, triangles in a photograph we can create amazing drawings.  

    Grades 3-5                                                                         
    The intermediate grades are also working on drawing animal faces and learning basic skills such as sketching, blending, use of gray scale, shading, as well as using various types of leads to come up with the desired value.  The focus is on creating a bilateral symmetric drawing, whereas the animal’s portrait is looking directly at you.  Our featured artist is Mark Crilley, he draws animal faces using specific guidelines and basic geometric shapes. He produces “How To” videos that are easily followed by elementary students.
