Fifth grade art studied the anatomy of the body and of the face. The students were then asked to create a detailed self portrait using a mirror. There were no restrictions on style or color. Each completed artwork reflects a strong sense of identity and an attention toward individuality. Mrs. Osmond, K-5 Art Teacher, states, “I am so proud that the students continually face each new challenge (inside and outside of art class) with creativity, perseverance, and a growing sense of confidence.” 🎨

Fourth graders built their tallest and sturdiest towers after studying different types of buildings and foundations in science class! #stem 🏢

To celebrate the end of a great first quarter in school, the sixth grade art classes painted along with Bob Ross episodes in watercolor. The students loved his encouragement and freedom as they painted their interpretations of his 25 minute oil paintings and "happy little trees." Well done! 🎨 "The Joy of Painting" with Bob Ross

The tradition continues — 8th Grade vs. Faculty Volleyball Game! 🏐 The 8th graders won the first game, faculty won the second game and the 8th graders WON the tiebreaker! 🦂 Go Scorps!

We are recognizing Hispanic American Heritage Month by having our students explore characters, authors and illustrators from diverse backgrounds in our library books. We not only read these books during our month-long celebration but all year round! Mrs. Young, CDS Librarian & Media Specialist, says "I don't like the idea of encouraging students to be cultural tourists. Instead of valuing diversity only during particular months, we recognize diverse achievements in Spanish class, in library, for math class during Invention Convention and during Preservation Week."⁠⠀
