A Peek at Student Showcase

All the classrooms are wrapping up the year with their stunning Student Showcase projects. I thought I’d take the opportunity to offer you a glimpse at the work in progress before you see the amazing final products tomorrow night. It’s an event not to be missed! If this post doesn’t convince you of that, maybe a few photos will…

Art – Colleen McDougal

See the amazing robots the children have made from recycled materials!

Art – Vic Schiro

Mr. Vic’s goal is to advance the children’s innate curiosities and observations of the natural world through the use of high-quality watercolor materials augmented with oil pastels.  The children learn the basics of color (the color wheel) and grow their technical skills throughout the school year. Come see the beautiful watercolors!

Cooking – Sara MacCracken

Thanks to a gracious donation from Driscoll’s we have been cooking & baking with lots of berries! We made raspberry blondies, blackberry breakfast cookies & raspberry sorbet. Today we are featuring dinosaur cookies with strawberry cream cheese frosting. Eat em’ up!

Animal Husbandry –  Stan Schneider

Students will be walking around this evening with  Amber (one of our miniature horses), and Franky and Billy, our pygmy goats.

Garden –  Jon Ellis

Samples of produce from the school garden are available.  Talk to Jon about his vision for the future of the MSO garden and how the curriculum is presented to our students.

Sign Language – Lisa Batchelder-Hetrick

This year the children in Rooms 1,2,3, and 6 have been learning the basics of A.S.L. We have had lots of fun learning through the use of songs, stories, games and activities.
