Information for Parents
Hello Green Woods Friends and Families!
This year, one of my goals is to have the students create a school-wide project using recycled materials. I am collecting clean plastic lids of all shapes, colors and sizes for this project (i.e. from a milk jug, peanut butter jar, soda bottle, etc.) If you would like to contribute, please send the lids in with your student, and we will collect them in the art room. I anticipate we will be collecting until the spring.
Exciting projects often mean messy projects! If this is concern, I recommend that students bring an over-sized tee-shirt to use as a smock over their uniform on Art days.
I am delighted to have such creative and artistic students here at Green Woods. It is certainly a testament to the instruction they received previously with Mrs. Mail, and also to their families for providing art enrichment outside of school. Many students have told me about art camps or activities that they have attended. Many students have also told me that parents or family members are artists. If you work in the creative arts, and you would like to come in and present what you do to our students, I would be pleased to have you. I think a great way to advocate for the arts is to demonstrate real world applications.
