Middle School Art Project Featured in 'School Arts' magazine
Congratulations to Visual Arts chair Ellen Mahoney, who was published this month in School Arts magazine, for the ninth time! Her article, “Underneath the Surface,” explores the historical importance of storytelling in clay, and showcases several of the personalized lidded jars that Buckley Middle School artists have designed. “My goal … was for students to create a ceramic vessel to capture a favorite thing at this moment in their lives.” Read more about the project here.
Students in grades seven through twelve took to the stage on April 22 and 23 for the Spring Dance Festival. To celebrate dance and the human spirit, Disconnect/Reconnect showcased student and faculty choreography, informed by personal journeys, aspirations, world events, and social justice issues.
With the leadership of interim science department chair Anat Fernandes, fifth grade students ventured to green space by the K-2 playground to learn about plants native to California, how to plant, and the importance of Earth Day.
