Happy Catholic Schools Week!




We painted the sidewalks for Catholic Schools Week. Today was A+ for Vocations Day so we honored the vocation of the priesthood. We are so blessed to have three awesome priests here at our parish. SMCS loves our priests!!

Amedeo Modigliani and the Wild Things...!



We're working on crayon resist projects this week. However, my 3rd - 5th
graders are also learning about the life and art of Amedeo Modigliani while my Kinder - 2nd graders are reading one of my all time favorite books, Where the wild things are. We had a blast today drawing our elongated faces and our wild things. I'm using my Scholastic Art Modigliani issue from I believe, 2006. Love that magazine!!

I will post more pictures when we're done. Hope you all have a great week!!
Live, Laugh, Love...Create....but first, pray!
