Wednesday's after school art club was a great success this week. Students began learning paper mache techniques to create Halloween pumpkins and shrunken heads. The clubs provide an after school snack and then students went to work creating the first part of their project. Can't wait to see the finished pieces!

Ghouls In The Making!

The Art Club is an after-school club on Wednesday afternoons that goes until 4:15 PM. The Art Club is run by Mr. and Mrs. Gibson and it meets in the Lobo Den right after school. The cost is FREE! … and the purpose of the club is to promote a growing appreciation of Art in our community and school and to encourage creativity.

To join Art Club you just need to get a Boys and Girls Clubs form from the front office, have your parents fill it out and sign it and then you are in!

Last week, we made tape sculptures of our arms and hands. We used clear tape and packaging tape to wrap each finger, hand, and arm. It was tricky to cut the tape off after we were done wrapping. We thought this was a perfect activity to get ready to decorate for Halloween. There’s nothing scarier than a ghost arm!

This week (Wednesday, October 4th), you can choose to make a papier mache pumpkin or a papier mache shrunken head! Come join the fun!

The forty-first annual Shakespeare Competition, hosted by the Utah Shakespeare Festival and Southern Utah University happened this weekend. There were 111 schools from 5 states who participated with over 20 schools in the junior high division alone. The competition gives students from around the nation a chance to present material from Shakespearean literature in various artistic forms. Our school did a great job, receiving superiors in all areas. Our Dance Trio --Gavin Skaggs, Broc Bennett, Emma Martin-- received 3rd place overall which is awesome!

The Shakespeare Team will be showcasing their great performances on Tuesday night at 7:30pm in the Little Theatre at the junior high. Come join in the fun and see the talent that our students possess.
