Wow, where has the time gone? This is the twenty-third year I have taught Art in the Dover School District. We are having a great year exploring new projects and techniques in art education. There are approximately 700 students in our Elementary Art program K-5. Mrs. Acocella is joining me at Wingdale Elementary. She is assisting in the art room, helping with everything including, material preparations and children's artwork displays. Her dedication and enthusiasm help to keep the K-5 Art program running smoothly and maintain our districts standard of excellence.
The tile project continues at Wingdale Elementary. Each 2nd grade student creates a self portrait on a ceramic tile as a lasting tribute to their last year at Wingdale Elementary. The tiles are completed in the spring and installed permanently on the walls of Wingdale Elementary for everyone to enjoy year after year. Our display grows with each second grade student moving on and growing up. The students, family and friends are always welcome back to their roots here at Wingdale Elementary School where there will always be a little bit of them still hanging around these hallowed halls. Everyone is welcome anytime for a visit and to see the installation.
I can be reached daily at Dover Elementary 8:15am-12:15pm 877-4700 and Wingdale Elementary 832-4530 from 12:30-3:00pm. As always it is a joy and a privilege to work with your children. Thank you!
