We had a wonderful field trip to The Attleboro Art Museum today. Thanks again to our chaperones who helped us get there and back safely. We’re so happy you were able to come along and enjoy the art with us. The kiddos seemed very interested and impressed by the art we saw today. We viewed “High Art” which was created by teams of local high school artists and their theme was “Metamorphosis”. A common theme in the art we viewed was taking care of our planet and a large portion of the materials used were recycled. We all got the message loud and clear “Take Care of Mother Nature!”
As of today we have 5 days of school left!
Next week our show & tell theme will be something that is your favorite color. Make sure to have your child pick something to bring to school and tell us about.
