3rd Grade Overnight Trip
This spring, the Sitton 3rd graders will again spend two unforgettable nights at Silver Falls State Park. The third grade team has already started the planning for the 3rd annual camping trip. The first fundraiser for the trip will be at Burgerville on December 5th from 5:00 - 8:00. Please come by for a meal and support the cause.
A Message from the Art Room
Students have been excited for an introduction to art class this year. We have had a few months to become familiar with different materials, processes, and styles. We have worked with various themes including collage, observational drawing, textiles, and painting. Third graders were featured in an art show for “Paint it Forward” that will raise funds for more art supplies! In Winter term, students will explore printmaking, papermaking, clay and more. I am very grateful to work with the Sitton students and faculty, and hope to meet more of our fantastic community as the year progresses. Look for student exhibits around the school and in our St. John’s community. Look for some exciting art shows this Spring as we continue our education in the Arts!
