Kudos to our visual arts students who received Scholastic Art and Writing Awards!
Their impressive, inspiring work was recently featured in this Visual Arts Awards slideshow. Visual Arts Department Chair Ellen Mahoney shared, "Even in this difficult 'Zoom year' the art department is so pleased that our students -- on their own, at home -- made the concerted effort to submit their artwork to Scholastic Art and Writing. Their efforts resulted in a number of pieces being accepted for the Scholastic Western Region Awards which includes ten states."
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.
