Art Room Update! Kindergarten learned how to "dip and print" using sponges; this was their first shot at printmaking! After the prints dried, scholars applied their cutting and gluing skills to cut out shapes and attach to make fun fall owls. Second grade learned the "slab" technique when working with clay. Each scholar used a rolling pin and wood slats to make a flat slab. Next, leaves were created by carving, bending and pinching. After the clay was fired, they finished them off by adding color using crystalized glaze to give a fun, spotted look. Fourth grade scholars learned about the artist Paul Klee and his dreamy style of painting. They used geometric shapes like Klee to design structures. They then applied watercolor paints by blending colors and exploring watercolor techniques to finish.
The third graders are using their knowledge of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math in some fun Fairy Tale STEM challenges during the month of December. The first was to make a contraption that would connect to a zip line so Little Red Riding Hood could ride OVER the woods and avoid the wolf.
Don't forget, the MacArthur Snack Sale starts tomorrow and goes until December 7th! All snacks will be sold for 50 cents with a 2 item limit. Each grade level has a day and time they will attend the Snack Sale.
Mrs. Sobczak's Kindergarten made turkey hats this morning and spent time talking about all of the things they are thankful for.
Don't forget that tomorrow is Tie Dye Tuesday! Show us your best tie dye!

Ms. Biermann's 1st Grade Class is hosting the MacArthur Snack Sale from 12/1 through 12/7. For the past 15 years, MacArthur students have used money earned from the sale to contribute to the Germantown community. This year the money earned will go directly to the St. Boniface Food Pantry. If you can help, donations of store-bought, prepackaged snack items would be appreciated . If you would like to give a monetary donation it will be used to purchase more snacks for the sale or will be added to the total given to the Food Pantry. Please make sure that prepackaged items are peanut/nut free. Thank you for your support!
