The 3rd grade students at MES have been studying landscapes by Henderick Avercamp. In our lesson we put on 3-d glasses and were able to see his art work in 3-d thanks to an app on the art departments new ipad!
Art is going to be so much fun this year!
I’m pleased to announce that Student Council and I got 3rd place in the “Fences on Parade” contest sponsored by Shelby County Arts Council! Our fence will travel around the county this summer along with the other winners. We are so excited!
It’s that time of year again!!! Please come join us at Montevallo Elementary on Tuesday March 13th 2012 for a night of Art and Music. Our theme this year will be “Have a Heart: Support the Arts!” We will have student art hanging all over the school and the Montevallo Elementary Chorus, led by the beautiful and talented Miss Hixson, will be performing. Also, check out the book Fair in the Library! So come and join us from 5:30p.m. to 7p.m. You’ll have plenty of time to view the artwork and check out the Book Fair before the Montevallo Elementary Chorus sings at 6:30 p.m.
MES will be having an Internet Safety Week January 9th through the 13th. Teachers and Staff will be educating students on how to use the internet safely. They will also learn what to do if they get in sticky situations when they are online. Here are a few useful tips to share with your children:
•Never share their names, schools, ages, phone numbers, or addresses;
•Never send pictures to strangers;
•Keep passwords private (except to parents);
•Never open email from strangers – it may contain viruses that can harm a computer; and
•Immediately tell an adult if something mean or creepy happens.
ArtWalk 2011 will be Saturday October 15th from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.. ArtWalk is a chance to get out and support the arts in our community. Many restaraunts and other businesses in Montevallo will be involved by displaying artwork and having specials on this night. So try your best to come out to Main St. and help support the arts in our community!
Student Council will meet every Monday at 2:15 p.m. in the Art room unless there is no school. We will be doing many things this year including the Warm Clothing Drive and the Annual Food Drive.
After School Art started Wednesday! We have a large group this year and we are doing a lot of fun projects. We started out the first day by making stained glass butterflies and dragonflies! The students loved it and can’t wait until next week. This year we are going to be doing paper mache’, clay pendants, weaving, and much much more!
