What a Year!

It has been a long and exciting year. Our Fine Arts Night was a hit, many thanks to all the teachers who took part in organizing the event! Everything looked amazing and I'm glad so many families came to enjoy the fun.

Middle school did a fantastic job on their Japanese woodblock inspired lanterns. They were all on display for Fine Arts Night. Students drew a selected famous woodblock picture and colored it in, no tracing!

 

The other middle school class made Japanese carp fish to celebrate Children's Day, on May 5th. Student cut their own material, carved a fish scale design out of a rubber block and used it to print a pattern on their fish. They did a marvelous job!

For our final display of the year, all of the elementary grades contributed to a giant mural about the ocean. Each grade had a different plant or creature they made. The collage was put together by 7th grade, who did wonderfully, at organizing so many different elements.

Now for the difficult part, saying goodbye. I am moving back to my home state of Texas and will miss St. Elizabeth Ann Seton so very much. I will remember so many of the little, bright and beautiful faces from this great school. It has been a joy to create art with so many creative students and know so many kind families. I thank you all for welcoming me! I will miss all the incredible teachers and staff who've worked alongside me these last 2 years. So many special memories I will never forget.

I want to thank my husband Jon, for all of his hard work behind the scenes these last two years. He designed and created all of the 8th grade Art award pins from this year, as well as last. He created the giant masterpiece selfie paintings for Fine Arts Night. He also did the incredible collection of background images for the 5th and 6th grade play, James and the Giant Peach. He always went the extra mile and I'm very lucky to have him!

A HUGE thanks to Señora Laska!!! From day one, a new teacher could not ask for a better mentor or friend! No matter how busy, she is always there to help. Thank you so much for ALL of your endless generosity!

I hope that you all have a wonderful summer, I will miss you dearly!
