Art Club 2012

Ms. Willams, with the support of her 2nd grade teammates, Mrs. Smith and Ms. Toles, has started Clifton Hills' first Art Club! Students learn about the basic principles of art such as line, shape, form, shadowing, etc.

Today's lesson was on shadowing. Students began with a short period of "free draw", then they began the formal lesson.

The Art Club is working towards having an Art Showcase of  their hard work. We can't wait!

Dance Team 2012

Clifton Hills has a Dance Team this year, started by yours truly! Girls from graded 3-5 were chosen by their teachers based on their grades, behavior, and dedication. We have a great team and can't wait to share our talent with everyone!

That's me! Keeping the beat for my girls!

Sneak peak at what we're working on!

Shout out to Ms. Brewer, Mr. Burney, Ms. Smith, and Mrs. Barnes for being great support and inspiration for the Team!
