If it is 8"X10" I will mat it for you.If you print it larger  you will be responsible for mating. The mat should be white. A few students have a number of excellent photos.

7th & 8th Grade Auction Project

from:Sims, Cindy

to:All Students

The 7th and 8th grade art class is working on a project to be auctioned off. An old wooden sewing machine cabinet has been re-purposed as a side table by Mr. lawton, Mr. Radford and, Mr. Sims until it was nice and sturdy.  So Far Shamar, Henry and, Justin have put on several primer coats of Kilz. The students have chosen a very attractive color palate and will begin painting next week. They are also working on Figure Ground Designs to go on the 3 side panels and front door. Figure Ground Design can be difficult to learn and is usually not taught until senior high or college. Please encourage and pray for them, there is still a lot to do! This will be worth bidding on.  Thank You, Mrs. Sims

Study Skills 2nd Quarter

from:Hutt, Tricia

to:Study Skills

Parents,

We will be learning how to do a research paper during 2nd quarter.  Our class has moved up to the computer lab.  We will be doing the bulk of our paper in class. However, whatever the students do not finish in class will become homework.  So, there are a few items your student will need for this project: 

1.  a thumbdrive (to save work and be able to transport information back and forth from home to school)

2. 3x5 notecards

3.  a report cover 

I have given the students a deadline sheet.  This is a big project and any help you can give at home would be much appreciated.  Thank you!  Feel free to email me with any questions.
