2014 has come and gone and we want to thank all the families, who have supported the Arts at our school, from bringing supplies for Arts’n Scraps, donating their time and/or expertise for various projects to attending SNArt events this school year.
2015 has much to offer as we get ready to host Skinnerpalooza, Art Night and are working on an outdoor chessboard for our medal winning chess team as well as other art installations to beautify our school.
Many hands and minds contribute to the success of our students and we thank you for your continued support!
Here are some highlights from the previous couple months and some upcoming dates you’ll want to jot down for the next year.
We’re wrapping up the year with another grant for Visual Art at Skinner North. Our resourceful art liaison, Mrs. Bradley, was successful in securing the Oppenheimer Grant.
The grant will enable her to provide our students with a special integrated art lesson this school year.
Joffrey Nutcracker Goodies
The SNArts outing for December was to see the Joffrey Ballet perform Tschaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite. Thank you for all the families, who participated and the students had a lot of fun getting to know each other and watching a world class performance.
Arts 'N Scraps
Thank you so very much for bringing your recyclables to school instead of the landfill.
Our students have been able to transform them into beautiful art pieces.
We are now in need of cereal boxes, so think of us, when you’re having breakfast.
You will find marked collection containers in the parent room, should you be interested in dropping cereal boxes off at school.
Please join us for our next SNArts committee meeting Friday, January 16th, 2015 in the parent room at 8:30am.
