So what might you see happening on EUMK’s playground on a sunny morning? YES.... outdoor painting! During a tour last week, a dad peeked out onto the playground and said, “Are those kids painting over there? How cool is that? “ How incredible for us to see our words about play being lived out in real life moments!

EUMK Parent Council
With enthusiasm, last Tuesday, the kindergarten board unanimously voted to appoint Rena Hiatt as Assistant Director of EUMK. This year will be Rena’s 26th year at our school. For twenty-two years, she taught children whose ages ranged from one to four. As a classroom teacher, she was a presenter during an annual TAEYC conference, sharing her skillset on developmentally appropriate teaching practices for two year olds. Since the fall of 2016, Rena has been a part of the administrative team and has served as Student Relations and Enrollment Coordinator. From November of 2017 through May of 2018, she was Interim Director of EUMK. During that time, she was a vital part of the NAEYC accreditation process. Due to her broad lens of experiences, she provides a wealth of knowledge and expertise about the daily functions of EUMK as well as easily connecting to our personnel, students, and parents. Please join us in congratulating Rena on her new role .

Senior Kindergarten students created a maze during STEM after reading “Run, Turkey, Run!”, by Diane Mayr. The marble represents Turkey trying to hide in silly places to avoid being the main course on Thanksgiving Day.

EUMK is proud to be a "Process Art" school. What does that mean?

Art projects that the students create are all about the process, over the product. Students are given freedom to explore and create using a variety of traditional and untraditional materials to be creative and express themselves through the process of "ART".

"Process Art expands the creative experience and awareness of children in all aspects of the visual arts through painting, drawing, printing, sculpting, architecture, and other manipulations of art materials." - MaryAnn Kohl, Educator and Author of art activity books for children
