Fifth grade students created "graffiti" art for our school community, which contains positive and encouraging symbols and messages. This project was inspired by the recent difficult times in our city as well as across the United States. The idea was to spread positivity and encouragement throughout our school in response. Students were inspired by pop artist Keith Haring, who is famous for his "public art" in New York City. He is known for his primitive, cartoon-like forms containing simple lines and bright colors. Students worked as teams to trace one another on large paper, and painted their own symbols and positive phrases.

We held our very first Mother-Son Dance on November 7th and it was a huge success. We had hundreds of moms, aunts, grandmothers and guardians show their support by attending the dance with their child. All proceeds from the dance went to our PTO. Take a look at some of our attendees!
