Arts Building Activities

This month, the Arts Building has been busy with activities. Earlier this month, FFA, under the leadership of Mr. Mabury attended Farm Fest in Springfield, MO. This is the Ozarks largest agricultural event with over 1000 agriculture and rural living exhibits. Students had the opportunity to visit with people in the agricultural field, learning more about the industry and recent innovations.

Also this month, students in Ms. V’s classes are working on the Art Club float for this year’s Fall Festival Parade. The Art Club always has an exciting float!

Classroom Highlights from 10/4-10/8

Last week, Mrs. Alcorn’s classes and Mrs. Johnson’s Prostart class participated in some interesting activities. Mrs. Alcorn’s class gathered fall leaves and then investigated the leaf cells under a microscope. In Mrs. Johnson’s class, students participated in a communication lab. Students paired up to prepare Molten Lava Cakes.  The twist was that one student was blindfolded and had to have verbal instruction from the partner. It was a great exercise to reinforce the importance of good communication skills in the kitchen.
