Happy Halloween!

Today students had a fantastic time celebrating Halloween at our Fall Harvest Festival!  Many students wore costumes to school, while others wore the Venetian style masks that they made in art class.  We also decorated the auditorium with our artwork.  Students studied the work of artists including Henri Matisse, Georgia O'Keefe, and Diego Rivera while making decorations. Have a safe and fun holiday!
