Since we are not able to be all together in a cozily crowded and festive cafeteria this year, we want to celebrate this season of giving, gratitude and food with a delicious pie-making contest!
Hard work is child’s play
The Sr. Elementary class collaborated with Ms. Emily (the Spanish Teacher), Ms. Christy (the Art Teacher) and Mr. Casey (the Music Teacher) to make this wonderful song and video of the Los Esqueletos song in honor of Día de Muertos.
This year, the exhibition will be entirely online – we hope it will be as popular as ever with a digital catalog (AND a physical catalog that will be available for purchase!).
Students in all three Primary classes (Yellow, Red & Blue) created their own videos to the Halloween classic, “Five Little Pumpkins”. The students made their own pumpkin puppets/masks and performed the song on camera.
In the month of September the Elementary and Jr. High studio classes worked on their first round of video projects with Mr. Casey. These projects featured objects and props doing dance routines. Students learned how to place themselves off screen, enter screen with the object, do a dance move and exit screen. Please enjoy these fun and energetic dance videos!
You are invited to create drawings, paintings, collages, or other artistic renderings honoring and remembering loved ones that will be installed alongside the students’ work.
Ms. Emily has been a faculty member at Escuela since 2003. This year she is switching hats from guiding the White Room to teaching Spanish!
Mr. Casey is using many of the skills he acquired this summer while virtual teaching with the Santa Fe Opera and National Hispanic Cultural Center to bring performing to students in new and exciting ways!
Ms. Christy is bringing new ideas to art this year and helping students to create both on campus and at home! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EKAVEM12078&feature=youtu.be
Coming Soon … the Escuela Studio Gallery!
