                                                                                               May Artists of the Month


Congratulations to the artists of the month: Alyssa Ali, Kendrick Carpenter, Ainsley Channon, and Kody Letteriello.
These kindergarten students drew a rabbit and then they watercolored it. They mixed the watercolors to make other
colors. They learned that mixing black and white would make gray. Great Job Kindergarten. Look for them in the mini
art gallery in the school office.
