American Gothic Grandparents

In celebration of Grandparent's Day, 4th graders created a parody of the famous portrait "American Gothic" by Grant Wood. The famous pair is replaced with the students grandparents. Look for "clues" that tell you about these special people.

Snowy Cityscapes

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! Happy snow days everyone! I hope you are staying warm and cozy and enjoying the first beautiful Ozark snowfall of the year. These cityscapes were created by 3rd grade students using a crayon resist painting technique. We finished them by using toothbrushes to "flick" the falling snow...what fun that was!
