The new school year is off to a good start so far! Some information for parents:
- If you are interested in being a parent volunteer with the Morse Arts Committee, please contact me either through email, or a visit to the Art Studio. We will be having a meeting in the next couple weeks to plan some events for the school year. Volunteer opportunities include: hanging up and taking down art throughout Central Square for our monthly Morse Art in the Community exhibits; fundraising; organizing a school wide art show; organizing our participation in Cambridge Open Studios; and classroom volunteering.
- If you are a kindergarten parent, I am looking for Art Studio Parents. This would be a 45 minute commitment every Friday during your student’s art class. This job can be shared between 2 or 3 parents, but it would be great to have a parent for each of the 4 classes. Paraprofessionals do not stay with the class during Art, and kindergartners really do benefit from 2 adults in the room.
- Please take note of which day your child has art class. Do not send them to school in brand new clothes! Students have a tendency to get messy in the art studio, and I do not provide smocks.
- I’m pleased to introduce Ms. Jan Chang, who will be my student teacher for the first 8 weeks of school. She is a graduate student at Boston University’s College of Fine Arts.
I will be at the K-5 Open House this Thursday, but not Tuesday’s 6-8 Open House. I can answer any other questions at that time.
