Lower Elementary October 21-25

Our curriculum is rich in all areas but cultural topics are some of the favorite studies . Integrating these topics into language, math, history, creative writing and studio art bring a "sparkle" to the interest and creativity of all students. We have been exploring different artists, styles and elements of art. Being able to actually view awesome sculptures this week gave inspiration to create our own sculptures. Check out our field trip pictures to Davidson College. It was an inspiring walking tour for all.
