Mrs. Mason - Music

Last week students continued their studies on melody, form, non-traditional instruments, music and the media, and Native American culture. Kindergarten performed the two-part song, I Love the Mountains, for some visitors from Clark and Lavey Benefits Solutions and the Merrimack YMCA, who joined us for a Spotlight Tour. First grade learned that notes can go up and down in a song and we added an accompaniment to our song that we learned from El Salvador, Los Patitos. Second grade finished putting together an accompaniment for their song from the West Indies and started to learn a dance from England after figuring out the form of the piece they would be dancing to. Third, fourth, and fifth grade continued playing their first song on recorders and we started learning the Orff orchestration that goes with it. Sixth grade learned a Buffalo Dance from the Lakota tribe and we added words and percussion to the dance. Seventh grade continued to learn about the role music plays on the radio and eighth grade continued learning their piece for the bucket ensemble. 

Mrs. Savoie - Kindergarten

Kindergarten is really looking forward to our field trip to "Mulan". We've been spending some time working on our own production of "Geraldine, the Music Mouse" so that we have some insight into what is involved in a stage production. We'll be performing "Geraldine" next Friday, October 14, during our all school meeting at 8:40. Family members are welcome to join us. During math this week we continue to look for hidden numbers (i.e. 2 and 3 are hidden numbers in 5) and will be decomposing the number 3 with pictures, objects, and expressions (1+2, 2+1). We'll shift our science conversation from studying the whole tree to making observations and comparisons about leaves. We'll be taking a walk to collect leaves and use them with the ones sent from home to explore the structure and shape of leaves. The new letters this week in Fundations are Cc and Oo. We have talked about vowels as open sounds and consonants as closed sounds and how important vowels are to words. You can't make a word without one.

Mrs. Waterman - First Grade

During Fundations, we will finish up our review of the letter sounds and lower case letter formation. We will have our end of unit assessment on Thursday and Friday.  Next week we will be ready to begin unit 2.  

This week in math, we will continue to work on story problems. This week’s lessons allow students to explore story problems where the action, which represents the change, is unknown. For example, “Ben has 5 pencils.  He got some more from his mother. Now, he has 9 pencils.  How many pencils did Ben get from his mother?”  Students will physically add more to the starting quantity and will count on until they reach the total.  This will be their first encounter with “counting on” in order to determine the unknown part. We will continue to write math facts in number bond formation and in number sentence formation.  

That Book Woman by Heather Henson, will be the text that we will be focusing on this week. Students will identify the characters, setting, problem, and resolution. Then, students create tableaux for the problem and resolution before they orally retell the story through the lens of those story elements. We will continue to work on nouns and verbs.  

Last week, we planted alfalfa and grass seeds.  This week, children will make observations of their seed and will document their growth . We will focus on the basic needs plants require to survive.


Mrs. Duffy - Second Grade

Our second grade social skills lessons this year are anchored in the Second Step Skills for Social and Academic Success curriculum. I combine these lessons and objectives with my teaching of The Zones of Regulation, and continue to draw heavily from the research and techniques of The Responsive Classroom as well. My students learn from the first days of school that “Mrs. Duffy’s class is kind,” and we work hard at learning how that looks, sounds, and feels in a wide variety of school-based scenarios. The Grade 2 Second Step program includes units focusing on: skills for learning, empathy, self management of emotions, and problem solving. Many of our lessons involve discussions and role-playing. Throughout the year, I will be integrating visual, music, and dramatic arts, math, geography, spelling, writing, history, and science lessons with our social skills curriculum as well. We are currently involved in choral reading and memorizing a poem based on a book we read about thoughts, feelings, and controlling our actions, and will soon be exploring these concepts further through lessons that integrate music, drama, and visual arts. Developing and refining social skills is an important facet of learning the requisite 21st Century skills of collaboration and problem solving. Happily, these lessons teach and reinforce skills second graders have ample opportunity to practice every day!


Mrs. Berube - Third Grade

We are excited to start our share times this week! In third grade, share time is much more than show and tell. Share time is a confidence and skills booster! Share time provides an opportunity for children to use language, conceptual thinking and storytelling abilities that will develop into more effective communication skills. Sharing one’s interests, mementos, talents and creativity nurtures a child’s emotional development. Third graders practice respectful listening when a classmate is speaking and show connections using silent signs.   Students share connections they have made by offering questions and comments after each turn. Share time prepares students for oral presentations that come later in the year!

Each third grader will have one official share time each week, when he or she shares before the group for about eight minutes. As a class, we brainstormed possible shares. We would like to share jokes, stories, creations, magic tricks and ongoing projects, books, songs, and poems. We would like to share lessons on how to make or do things, and we would like to share performances, such as acting, Irish step dance, cheers and guitar. Toys, stuffed animals and electronics are discouraged for share times in third grade. 

Families are encouraged to help students prepare for their share days. Once your third grader has decided on the share, ask what your child thinks are the three most important things to tell about it.  Predict questions that classmates may ask.  

Please look for our third grade share calendar, which will be sent home this week!


Miss Frost - Fourth Grade

We are so excited to go on our first field trip!! We will discuss expected behaviors on the bus and at the Palace Theatre before we go. The kiddos have been doing such a great job during ELA for their Daily 5 rotations. This week we will talk about abstract nouns and relative pronouns. We will also start a readers’ theater about the Civil War! We will review place value skills that students may be struggling with and begin to do some multi digit addition. We are continuing to do reading assessments and will start small reading groups soon! 


Mrs. Tanguay - Fifth Grade



Ms. Alvarado - Sixth Grade

A lot of wrapping up this week! In Math, students will be completing their first mid-module assessment which will give me further understanding as to what we may need to review or if we are able to move forward with this module. We will also be starting a Zentangle activity in which students use their understanding of equivalent ratios to create an intricate Zentangle art work. 

In ELA, we will also be finishing up our modern day legends. Students will be given the opportunity to proofread someone else's work in class. All students are quite excited about this project and have come up with detailed ideas to share with the class if they choose to do so.  

In Social Studies, we will also be finishing up our collage artwork for our Native American articles that we have read. Students will have completed their collage based on the main idea and key details of a specific Native American cultural aspect. 


Mrs. Fritz - 7th & 8th Grade Humanities

Humanities is seeing STEAM everywhere this week! 

With the 7th grade having recently completed their first essay of the year (nice work guys!!), we are going to be diving straight into the technicalities of sentence structure, verb tense agreement and grammar.  We will also begin our new text; The Canterbury Tales. This is particularly exciting as it connects perfectly with the play that students are developing with Mrs. Tanguay in enrichment.  Henry Chaucer, here we come!

The 8th grade are incorporating science and ethics into humanities this week with a visit from Lianne Smith, a woman in the field of science! Lianne is coming to talk about the work that she did on the drug AZT and the ethical and economical implications that her and her group encountered. After a particularly thought provoking discussion that occurred on Google classroom this weekend, students will debate with the assistance of Lianne, myself and the others teachers in our classroom, whether there is a need to incorporate a placebo group in a clinical trial or not.  This ties into our ongoing economics assignment which is due late October.  


NEW and HOT OFF THE PRESS: Debate Club

We are going into our third week of debating this week and we are very excited to be discussing students selected topics based on what they argue to be the 'most influential event in history'.  Up this week: WWI vs WWII (a world wide perspective). Our focus will be on learning the role of speaker one and how an introduction should sound in a formal debate.   


Mrs. Kone - 7th & 8th Grade Math and Science

This week in eighth grade math, we will finish up our unit on scientific notation and have a unit test mid-week. In seventh grade math, we will continue our exploration of unit rate. In science, we will be working on creating stream tables that model different land uses. It is going to be a great week!


Ms. Keefe - Visual Arts

Greetings from the Art room! I am always amazed when I hear "I can't draw" yet after a bit of prompting what incredible artwork my seventh graders were able to create! From 3D sugar castles to pencil renderings of dragons, I really think they amazed themselves! Lots of ideas and fun projects to come for all grades...(and Ms.K will keep trying to pull out inner artists in all her students)...

October 12, 2016

Mrs. Mason - Music

Last week students continued progressing in their perspective units. Kindergarten and first grade learned that notes in a melody can stay the same. Second and fifth grade learned about the forms ABA and AABBCC, learning dances from England and from the Native American tribe, the Nanicoke. Third and fourth graders finished a recorder piece and started writing the song for their end of the year recorder books. Sixth grade learned about the music and dance from the Sioux and Zuni tribes. Seventh started learning about music’s role in advertising and eighth grade worked on splitting their song for the concert into two parts. 


Mrs. Savoie - Kindergarten

Kindergarten parents are invited to our performance of "Geraldine, the Music Mouse", Friday. October 14 at 8:40 a.m. in the great hall. Roles have been cast, props have been made. We look forward to seeing everyone who would like to come watch.

Every Friday morning we have computer and art time, half of us go to the computer with Mrs. Savoie and half go to art with Mrs. Dinbergs.  During art we have been working on colors, primary and secondary. In future weeks we'll be working on a color book, focusing on different art techniques.

Our kindergarten class came to school with a great range of experience with computers. Some said they had never used one before and some were experts.  As of last Friday, everyone is able to open the Safari web browser and get onto PBSkids.org.  Also, we have been working on keyboarding skills by using Pages to type our names.  In upcoming weeks, we'll be using Pages to write a class book based on "Frederick" by Leo Lionni.

In math we've started working on proper numeral formation.  Our math program includes rhymes to remind students of how numerals are formed. I'll be sending the rhymes home for the numerals 0-9 so you have this information as well.  We're also talking about the meaning of zero and answering "how many" questions.  

For some students, our math curriculum starts off at a slow pace.  The first module gives us the opportunity to make sure we all have the same knowledge going forward.  Also, each level of Eureka math is a building block for the next level.  We are learning procedures and strategies that will be built upon during subsequent grades.


Mrs. Waterman - First Grade

Fundations is such a fun and exciting time of day for first graders.  This week, we  began Unit 2.  In this unit, students will begin to blend words that have three sounds.  We will begin by stretching out words and taping out the sounds.  Children will manipulate their magnetic letters for form words.  They will also change the initial final sound to create new words.  They children were so excited and so proud of themselves to finally be spelling and reading new words.  

This week in math, we will continue to work on story problems with missing factors.  Students will also continue to work on number bonds and adding numbers within ten. 

Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss, will be the text that we will be focusing on this week.  Students will continue to identify the characters, setting, problem, and resolution. We will also be learning about persuading and how we can politely persuade people to try new things.  At the end of the week, students will have the opportunity to retell and act out Green Eggs and Ham.  

In science , we will continue our study of plants and animals. This week we will observe what will happen to our grass when it is cut.  We will also be observing the many different trees and plants around of school.  


Mrs. Duffy - Second Grade

It wasn’t hard to decide on this week’s topic…I just had to write about our new Hokki stools! Teachers are always on the lookout for ways to differentiate our teaching in order to make our lessons accessible and beneficial to all of our students, and innovative, ergonomic seating is an incredible addition to a teacher’s toolkit. Having tried cushions, yoga balls, and a variety of chair styles over the years, I began investigating alternative student seating solutions again last year. I was intrigued to find that, time and again, my research led to Hokki stools. I read that Hokki stools provide safe and sturdy seating that encourages children to move and strengthen their core while completing academic work. The stools rock and sway while the children work, providing physical and cognitive benefits while allowing kids to be kids and to fidget, wiggle, and concentrate. My students last year were able to experiment with several innovative seating options, and when Mrs. Cevasco informed me that it might be possible to obtain Hokki stools for my classroom, I was thrilled. I kept their arrival a surprise for the children, and the delight in the classroom was palpable when I began distributing the new stools late one afternoon last week. We love our Hokki stools in second grade! Exercising on them while we learn is so much better than trying to sit still! Yay school!


Mrs. Berube - Third Grade

Last week we finished our close listening of the classic, “Mr. Popper’s Penguins”, which we enjoyed as the first novel read aloud in third grade.  We are following up with shorter read alouds of other penguin themed books. Inspired by our beloved fictional characters and our recent field trip to the Palace Theater, third grade will take on a Readers’ Theater production of “Tacky The Penguin” this month.  We will start with a whole group dramatic read aloud “with expression.” I will gauge interest and take it from there!  As well as being a relaxing break that we all look forward to, Read Aloud is a time when I model fluent reading, thinking aloud as I read, asking comprehension questions, finding text based evidence to support answers, and learning enriching vocabulary.  As a result of tuning in to many interesting words during Read Alouds, partner reading and read to self times, our class has created two vocabulary books we will add to throughout the year.  One vocabulary book consists of pages on which a student defines an unfamiliar word, lists its synonyms, writes a sentence containing the word, and visualizes the word’s meaning through a sketch.  Our other vocabulary book is a collection of illustrated sentences completed as “word work” by partners.  One student chooses a word from the word jar and writes a sentence containing that word.  Another reads the sentence and checks for understanding, then illustrates the meaning.  We are excited to create additional reference books for our classroom library.  Many of our third graders enjoy reading picture dictionaries in their spare time!  I am proud of the group’s interest in reading and their growing vocabulary.


Miss Frost - Fourth Grade

Fourth graders are doing so well with their Civil War plays. We are starting to make props for our actors; everything looks fantastic! We will continue on with multi-digit addition in math. For ELA we will talk about the different layers of the ocean. We have a fun ocean related art project that we will complete. In science, small groups are working investigations about water that they want to complete. The ideas the kiddos came up with are great, we are looking forward to finishing up our materials list and procedure and starting those investigations. 


Mrs. Tanguay - Fifth Grade

Math: 5th grade is doing an amazing job with our first Module. We will be taking the end-of-the-module assessment later this week. Please take some time at home to work with your student on multiplication tables and practicing long division. The concepts that we are working on learning, from here on through the rest of the year, are only difficult for students who are not fluent in multiplication and division facts. The more practice that the students put into this, the more smoothly the rest of the year will go, so please have some fun with this at home and make it part of your daily routine!

ELA: For the next few weeks, students will work on reading the rest of the text Thunder Rolling in the Mountain, while keeping track of similarities and differences between the two main characters. They will also explore some non-fiction resources, such as videos and a speech from Chief Joseph himself. We are working toward a final essay that will include a compare/contrast paragraph.

Science: We are "rolling" through science, enjoying our exploration of balls and motion. So far students have learned to measure speed and distance. 

Reminder: Please check student planners every night and sign or initial at the bottom. We are having a friendly competition to see who can remember to get their planner signed every week for a full week!


Ms. Alvarado - Sixth Grade

This week our class will be conducting our first art critique. This critique will be surrounding our completed Zentangle artwork with ratios. This will be the first of many critiques to come throughout the school year. We will be moving from ratios to rates and understanding the relationship between the two. In ELA we will be working on compare and contrast paragraphs to work up to our end of module essay that will be based off of the values and beliefs between Sound of Running Feet and Chief Joseph in our novel, Thunder Rolling in the Mountain. We will be continuing our work in Literature Circles while we are continuing to read. Our literature circles have developed over the course of this novel and students are really starting to ask thought provoking questions that will entice comments from all members. 



With Columbus Day landing on a Monday, students were asked to debate off of Google Classroom. The statement posed this week was: "The world is better off with the help of the USA." Students were chosen to either be on the affirmative or negative side of this question and asked to debate back forth through the classroom. It was great to see so many students chime in on Monday adding to conversations and practicing their introductions. 


Mrs. Fritz - 7th & 8th Grade Humanities

"Veni Vidi Vici"

The 7th grade are stepping out of the European Middle Age and exploring how the Romans were doing during this period.  Narrative stories are on the horizon and therefore, exercising our creative nature will be imperative! Keep an eye out for some expressive short stories! 

8th grade are in the final stretch of the current module "The power of poetics and storytelling." They will be performing partner poetry about relationships and a sense of self on Tuesday and then diving straight into the end of module assignment - a personalized poem based on an experience that they had.  It's going to be an exciting week of discussion and creativity. 


Mrs. Kone - 7th & 8th Grade Math and Science

This week in seventh grade math, we will be doing scale drawing and scale factors. We are working on finishing this unit, so we will be having a unit test next week.  In eighth grade math, we are starting algebraic expression and equations.  We will continue studying stream tables and the watershed in science. It should be a great week!


Ms. Keefe - Visual Arts

After a nice long weekend the students tackled drawing faces. Although it is a challenging subject matter for any artist to draw, the secret is in the the basic mechanics. Today’s lesson focused on breaking the face down into parts and placement of those parts on the facial structure. The magic is still seeing the student's own creativity of drawing their own interpretations of facial features within the road map of a human face.  The younger students are fearless; my reluctant older students were happy with drawing facial features by focusing on the details as long as these faces were not supposed to look like anyone.

October 24, 2016

Mrs. Mason - Music

Last week students started to finish their units on melody, music and the media, nontraditional instruments, form, and multicultural music. Kindergarten through fifth grade started learning about “The Carnival of the Animals” by Camille Saint-Saëns. The younger grades have learned about the different animals and about the musical opposites that the animals have in their pieces. Second through fourth grade created their own dances and melodies for the animals without having to listen to the music and will be watching a video to see how their music and dances compare to the actual piece and dances that ballet companies have come up with. Fifth grade has been challenged with creating a dance and melody for an animal that is not in the piece and will be presenting their own “Carnival of the Animals” during this week’s class. Sixth grade finished learning about the Native American culture and will begin to work on a cross-curricular project to present during a class meeting that ties what they have learned in music with what they have learned in their other academic classes. Seventh grade finished learning about music’s role in advertising and will be starting to learn about music in film and eighth grade will be finishing their bucket song this week


Mrs. Savoie - Kindergarten

After one week of playing catch up with Second Step, we are starting a new unit this week about empathy.  This week we'll be talking about feelings, primarily happiness and sadness.  Look for the letter home on Thursday or Friday.

Lots of changes are occurring this week during our ELA time.  We are at the mid-point of the first unit in Fundations and I'll be doing a mid-unit assessment with each child individually.  I've explained to the class that this assessment is a chance for me to find out what they remember so we know what we need to practice more.  You won't receive a Fundations letter this week; we'll be back to learning new letters next week.

We are now utilizing the Daily Five format to organize our ELA time.  Children are divided into 4 groups of 5 students to work on reading skills.  During Daily Four (because we only use 4 of the 5 options in kindergarten), groups get to work with teachers in small groups to create an alphabet book and certain Fundations drills.  Our other 2 stops during Daily Four are Read to Self and ELA Boxes or iPads. Over the course of 2 days, each child gets to work on all 4 things.  During Read to Self, students pick one book from their book baskets to either read the words or read the pictures.  Then, they record their favorite part of the the book in their book journals.  In the journal, they copy the title of the book and either draw or write their favorite part.  On Wednesday, the first groups will use iPads for the first time.  We use 3 apps during class, Little Writer, Phonics Island, and Rhyming Bee. 


Mrs. Waterman - First Grade

This week in math, we will continue to work on addition and counting on.  We will also continue to explore when two numbers are added together, the total is the same regardless of which numbers appears first or second in equations. Toward the end of the week, we will begin to explore the double addition facts.  

During our ELA block, we will continue to work on writing our first narrative.  Students will be working on retelling the story, That Book Woman .  They will identify the character, setting , problem and solution of the story. During Fundations, we will be completing unit 2 and taking the end of unit assessment.  After completing our assessment, we will begin unit 3 which will focus on consonant digraphs wh, ch, sh, th and ck.  

In science we will begin to explore growing wheat.  We will be conducting an investigation that explores growing wheat with paper towel, a straw and water.  Students will observe and collect data on how fast their wheat seed grows and the length of the roots vs. the stem. 

Thank you to those who have sent in plant clippings from your home.  We are eagerly watching our romaine hearts and carrot top grow and the pineapple sprout  a few roots. The pineapple top looks rotten but it has started to root! The kiddos are so excited to see the changes from day to day.  Please send in any plant, herb or vegetable cuttings you may have.  We’d also like to try celery hearts. We are enjoying watching our many plants take root in water!  


Mrs. Duffy - Second Grade

Second graders are working hard on writing a narrative paragraph this week. This is one of our grade level Common Core Standards, and requires the combination of many skills for young writers. Children must first think of what to write about, then focus on the complicated and many-faceted task of getting those ideas on paper. Letter formation, punctuation, grammar skills, sentence structure, organization of thoughts, and logical presentation of ideas are just some of the many skills young writers must harness in order to write a cohesive paragraph. To help manage the process at this stage, all students are writing a narrative about seasonal changes they have been observing in a tree outside our building. We have spent two sessions outside this fall with clipboards, pencils, and crayons, closely observing and drawing a tree of each child’s choosing. The children began writing their three part narrative several weeks ago, crafting introductory sentences and using adjectives to describe the tree they observed. This week, the children will write the middle section of their narrative. Their completed work must describe a sequence of observations, and must include temporal words to signal event order, careful writing of descriptions including details, and a concluding sentence. With guidance and support, children are strengthening their writing by revising, editing, and rewriting. This is a big project and second graders can be proud of their work! We are busy integrating art,  science, and literature into our study of paragraph writing, and will be ready to send some of this work home in another couple of weeks. 

Mrs. Berube - Third Grade

Third grade has started our writers’ workshop by examining and practicing informational writing. After learning the features of nonfiction text, we are ready to write our own.  We have made lists of things we are experts about.  Our first task is to be a teacher and list steps to instruct a reader to complete a task.  Using transitional words like “first”, “then”, “next” and “finally”, we will create a “How-To” book that others may read to follow directions.  We have had fun discovering missing steps while attempting to follow the written directions. Our third graders are learning to reread and edit their work with peer reviews.  We enjoy learning from each other.  Soon we will know how to: make a paper light saber, walk a dog, mix up chocolate milk, and draw a dinosaur, among other skills.


Miss Frost - Fourth Grade

Fourth graders did such an amazing job with their Civil War play; I am so proud of everyone. We will do a second showing sometime this week so 1st and 3rd grades can come and see our wonderful work. We have a couple of fun painting activities for the week including a haunted house, a still life and making mazes for Winn-Dixie, our classroom pet hamster! In math we will continue to do multi-digit addition and subtraction. We have been working hard on tape diagrams, which show the parts and the whole in a math problem. Some of our word problems are tricky and require multiple steps. We will work on reading math problems and paying attention when there are more than one step to do. Some math groups are starting to talk about metric conversions. We will start to talk about "All About Books" and everyone will write their own chapter books - exciting! 


Mrs. Tanguay - Fifth Grade

Math: Multiplication, multiplication, multiplication! Please continue to work on multiplication facts at home, all the way up to the 12s. As we work on multiplying multi-digit numbers by other multi-digit numbers, everyone needs to have a strong foundation in multiplication. Feel free to use drills, play games that involve multiplication, and even use technology to reinforce fluency. 

ELA: This week we will start practicing compare/contrast paragraphs to prepare us for our final essay. Students will compare their portraits of Sound of Running Feet to a portrait of her father, Chief Joseph. We will look at using transition words in our writing to show the similarities and differences that we identify. 

Science: Students are using spring scales to answer the focus question "How much force is applied from one object to another when objects collide?"


Ms. Alvarado - Sixth Grade

This week in math we will be finishing up our Ratios, Rates, and Proportions unit. Our end-of module assessment will be on Friday October 28th. Students will be encouraged to bring home their math binders and review, study, practice any concepts they feel are ones they need to practice. In ELA, we had visitors on Monday from the NH Historical Society share a presentation on the Abenaki Trail. This is a wonderful learning experience for our students to get a hands-on and in-depth experience on another tribe. We will also be focusing on the structure of explanatory essays as students will be writing their own essays next week. We will also be holding our last literature circles as we will be finishing up the book this week, as well. In Social Studies students are continuing to craft their debate arguments for or against the statement: Whites consider themselves to be culturally superior to indigenous people. 


Mrs. Fritz - 7th & 8th Grade Humanities

We have reached the summative assessment week in 7th and 8th grade.  Everyone has their heads down, busily curating their final essays, poems and projects for hand-in on Friday.  Deadlines seem to be a consistent event in life and thus it is an exciting, but naturally stressful, time.  We are all looking forward to submitting these final pieces knowing that all of our hard work and commitment will pay off; it also signifies a new module is looming! Next week we shall start learning about the great Wars of the early 20th Century. The 7th grade begin reading "Code Talker" by Joseph Bruchac and 8th grade will begin "All Quiet on the Western Front" by Erich Maria Remarque.  


Mrs. Kone - 7th & 8th Grade Math and Science

For both the seventh and eighth grades, we are working on a week long experiment in Science class.  We are determining how fertilizer affects the growth of duckweed.  All of our students are learning about the harmful effects that nitrates  and phosphates have on our waterways.  In seventh grade math, we started a new unit dealing with percents. In eighth grade, we are finishing up our exploration of linear equations and  will be having a test later this week. 


Ms. Keefe - Visual Arts

So quickly the leaves have fallen! With brisk temperatures the younger students are making pumpkins with their own unique facial expressions and the older grades created scary watercolor scenes. We love displaying the artwork throughout the school, and will send home these beautiful art pieces for students and parents to cherish! Enjoy...
