    Second grade music performance will take place on March 10th at 6:30 pm.  

    Choir has resumed for the New Year!  Parents: Please remember to drop your child off for choir at Parent Pick-up.  Students should not be dropped off at the front door for safety reasons, as teachers are arriving for work and need to park in the staff parking lot.  

    Please see the attached note if your child is in the Advanced Choir and has not yet signed up for the Six Flags Music in the Parks Festival on May 2nd.  Students must register ASAP.

    Advanced Choir Note-Music in the Parks/6 Flags


    This is an exciting month for the Art Program!  Kindergarten is woking with clay, and 5th grade will be using our new set of classroom cameras as they learn about "Filling the Frame".  First-fourth grade as well as 6th are working on Artist Study this month, which is a component of Art History.  Some of the products created from the Artist Study Unit will become auction items at Fine Arts Night.

    Fine Arts Night is scheduled for April 7th.  We have big ideas for the evening, and are looking for volunteers to help with the planning, set-up, etc.  Please email us at hunsbergerartprogram@gmail.com if you are interested in helping out!!

    Lastly, we are having a Paint Party next Wednesday the 22nd from 9:30-3:00.  Just drop by anytime you are available.  Our goal at the beginning of the year was to have a product example of every one of the lessons in the curriculum binders.  So far we have met our goal, and our previous paint parties and the amazing parent volunteers who have participated, have helped up to achieve that.  We have three units left to complete, which is roughly 100 product examples.  if you'd like to help us out, please email us at hunsbergerartprogram@gmail.com and we will pass along further details.  The parties have been incredibly fun, full of great conversation and creativity.  We would love to see you there!

    Thank you to all the families and friends that have so generously donated to the computer lab fundraiser, have bid in the silent auction, and have been supportive of our quest for coding robots!  We couldn't do any of this without you, and it is truly a blessing to see so much support and kindness in our school community!  A special thank you to my Skolnick padawans and their parents for going above and beyond.  Look for a special thank you in January's issue of the Husky Gazette!

    Newspaper Staff:  please remember that the last day to turn in drafts to Mrs. G is January 22nd, except for those that have made prior arrangements.  Thank you!
