LATE START DAYS
NAHS (National Art Honor Society) is preparing for their Adventures in Art community service event. It is the 8th annual event being held at Bayfield High School Saturday March 8th. Every year, students from the elementary school who are gifted artistically are chosen to receive a scholarship to participate from nine in the morning to twelve noon. This scholarship is no cost for these elementary students. NAHS students fundraise every year to pay for this event which cost them $400. NAHS high school members design and write lesson plans for six different art lessons. The elementary students will come home with six creative art projects that they do at this Saturday morning event. They will learn about new art techniques and be able to use thirty new art vocabulary words. Some of the stations they will participate in include painting to music, creating clay critters, button making, still life drawing, print making, and cartooning. Every twenty-five minutes, the students rotate to a new station; each station is solely taught by the high school students. They receive Animal Crackers and juice which they quickly consume because they can't wait to get back to their art projects. Parents come to pick up their students after the group photo and the demonstration of new vocabulary knowledge. Each student is rewarded with candy for their correct answers delivered by the high school students. Adventures in Art will be an absolute success for the elementary students and the NAHS members running it, making it a fun and creative day of art projects.

Having only 100 days of school left calls for a celebration! These first-graders in Joey Lowe's class came to school in cardigans, glasses, and the occasional fake beard, ready to learn all about the number 100.
This was a rotation day, where students moved around to other classrooms to count by tens, sort into groups of ten, and count to one hundred. All this was to help them meet first-grade standards for number sense.
However, they all spent a little time talking about what it would be like to be one hundred. Old people, the students decided, are a little lumpy, a little wobbly, and have lots of ear and nose hair. They have big bottoms and poor hearing, saying "What?" a lot. Although according to one first-grader, the cutoff for "old" starts at thirty-five! There's nothing like a child's perspective to make every adult feel, well, a little bit old.
