Art continues to roll on! Kindergarten and 1st Graders are getting closer to completing their "Art Books" which are scheduled to come home right before the Winter Break. Kindergartners and 1st graders might come home talking about "Steve;" no worries, that's just what every paint brush in the Art Room is named. We learn how to use Steve's hair to paint--never scrubbing or twisting or pulling his hair out. Because, of course, a bald Steve can't help us paint.
