Art Class

We need your help collecting art supplies!!
Ms. Volk is looking for any Art related books or magazines you may have collecting dust in your home! She will be using them for students to read and look at visual images of art, about artists, about art ideas/crafts/projects, and art processes.

Also any unused coloring books, sports equipment catalogs, toy catalogs, food magazines, and vacation spot magazines for use in a collage project.
Lastly – Please save your toilet paper and paper towel rolls and send them with your child to the Art Room!

Meadowthorpe’s Five Paradigms:

Every Mustang is a leader.

Every Mustang is gifted.

Every Mustang is at-risk.

We treat/teach every Mustang as if his or her parents are in the room.

Calumet Farm treats every foal like it is the next Triple Crown winner; we treat every Mustang as if he or she is the next President, inventor, author, artist, doctor, or next great _____ !

It is the mission of Meadowthorpe Elementary Staff to educate all students to be productive and responsible members of a changing society by assuring quality instruction in a safe, caring and diversified environment.

It is our mission to provide a safe, positive, and motivating environment in which students will learn and reach their highest potential through the cooperative efforts of our students, parents, staff, and community.
