APS Fine Arts Program 2013
We are so excited to have the APS Fine Arts Program back at Bellehaven!
Second through fifth grades have been making designs based on symmetry. Parents, ask your student what symmetry is and how we used it in our latest project.
Kindergarteners and first graders have been reviewing primary and secondary colors. Ask them how to
use red, yellow and blue to make green, orange and violet.
And be sure to ask about our fabulous Art Chair and what kind of behavior it takes to be chosen “chair person”. Stop by the art room to see what we are creating! - Kris Keller, APS Fine Arts Teacher
Every year our 3rd through 5th grade students participate in the school Spelling Bee. The top two students go one to participate in the District Bee. If your child excels in spelling or just loves to spell check out the National Spelling Bee website, www.spellingbee.com. This website provides yearlong information and tips to students and families. You can go online and sign up for newsletters that will help your child succeed. If you have questions about upcoming School Bees please contact Brandy Smotts at email@example.com.
