Positive and Negative Space
Students in grades 7 & 8 at Pine Tree Academy are learning about positive and negative space during art class. Parent and volunteer extraordinaire, Chris Thacker, takes his time every Friday morning to teach the students fundamentals of drawing as well as techniques to enhance their drawings.
Study of India
This week 5th and 6th grade enjoyed some hands on fun while studying India. Mrs. Gantt came to visit and taught the students about Indian women's traditional dress and the art of how to wrap a sari. They also sampled some delicious Indian food. Yum!
The First Thanksgiving
Students in Pre-K and Kindergarten have been learning about Native Americans and The First Thanksgiving. Their teacher, Lani Gepford, lets them pick Native American names that they use for the whole day. The students also designed "buck-skin" pillow case robes and personalized drums.
On Sunday, October 19, 2014, the Home and School Association sponsored a work-bee for the elementary playground. The much needed face-lift, not only improved the aesthetics of the playground, but addressed some safety concerns as well. A HUGE thank you to all of the volunteers who came out to help!
