Using recyclable materials, papier-mache, and paint, Grade IV students have created vases inspired by Ancient Greek pottery. Drop by the library and check out this visually delightful display. Thank you Ms. Bartlett in the Art Department!
Park students recently had the privilege of meeting Raul the Third, award-winning illustrator of the Lowriders in Space series of graphic novels. Grade IV teacher Ms. Botsford remarked, "he shared incredible stories from his childhood that made us all laugh but also allowed us to see how small moments from our lives can become incredible inspirations for our futures."
Mr. Schmidt is a dynamic new member of our Grade IV team, and he chose Brian Selznick's The Marvels for his library selfie. "Spanning hundreds of years of 'history,' it's a beautiful mix of words and pictures," he says,"exploring identity and the power of stories, both the true and the not true." Yes!
