I am AWESOME! Day at PES!

On Halloween, Pecatonica Elementary students celebrated being awesome by wearing custom stickers and a fun assembly in the morning!  We thanked our awesome school volunteers for "lighting up the life of a child" by gifting them lanterns and singing our Thank You song.  Then some fun teachers put on a skit to The Little Old Lady Who Wasn't Afraid of Anything

Just a friendly reminder, the Art Show & Family Reading Night is December 7th from 5-7pm in the elementary school cafeteria!

More cardinals & reindeer!  But’s not even Halloween yet!

Our third graders have been working hard on their art show pieces!  How will they ever choose which one to submit?

More Sneek peeks at Art Show work!

We sure have been busy artists in the Dragonfly Studio!  Check out these Charley Harper Cardinals our seconds graders are working on!  Students will choose which piece (or something on their own) they want to submit to the art show.  We have to ship them before Thanksgiving break so Artome has time to frame all of them.

3rd Grade Concert Decorations

Our 3rd graders worked hard on their decorations for their upcoming concert this week!

Some classes are also getting a head start on some pieces for the art show on December 7th.  I have hired Artome again this year to frame each child's artwork!  For $25, families may purchase their child's artwork framed are ready to hang at home.  Proceeds come back to the Dragonfly Studio to purchase more art supplies.  Any work not purchased will be returned to students.

Also in case you haven't had a chance, you can come see me as Marjorie Margarine in Offed at the Bake-Off one last weekend (Sunday is sold out).  This is my first time acting on stage and has been a wonderful experience!

Mixing paints and Star Spangled Banner

My new kindergarten students had a great time mixing yellow and magenta paint to make orange pumpkins!

On Monday at 12, we paused class so we could listen to Ms. Durand sing the Star Spangled Banner over the intercom.
