Our little girl has grown up so fast, yesterday at the DVMS, I took her outside and she was a very good girl. She is still a very energetic girl and loves to play but she is very patient with prodding children.

The First Stage

By | Drama, Students | No Comments

Today in set building we started brainstorming about our upcoming play: Romeo and Juliet. Taping the floor was a lot of fun. We came up with some cool ideas and I can’t wait to find out who’s who tomorrow and read through the script for the first time! After last year’s play I’m really excited for it!

Today we started reading Romeo and Juliet, with a little twist! We each were assigned a character from a scene and we played that character throughout the scene. I had a lot of fun playing Mercutio and am excited for next week!

By | Art, Students | No Comments

The students in Earth art/reclaimed art burnt plastic onto piece of wood to make a painting. They also burnt black plastic spoons and stuck them together to make a withered rose, and they burnt a plastic Smurf from McDonald’s. The plastic was burnt with a propane blowtorch, the users of the blowtorch wore masks over their noses and mouths.

Making Artifacts for Humanities

By | Art, Humanities, Students | No Comments

Leif F. and Sebastian are making artifacts out of clay. These artifacts are similar to artifacts that were found in excavation sites of ancient Greece and Alexandria. Sebastian is making Eratosthenes’ head out of clay. Eratosthenes was a Greek mathematician, geographer, poet, astronomer, and music theorist. He later became the head librarian of Alexandria. Leif is making an ancient Greek wine bottle out of clay, ancient Greek wine bottles are similar to modern wine bottles however they are much wider at the bottom.
