I tag teamed teaching this year with another mom. Next year, I take over the program for the entire school. I'm pretty nervous but also excited about that. I figure I'll be at this school for quite a while so I'll start in a PTO elected position that is not quite so scary as say going right for president.
In February we host a big art gala at the school. All the walls are covered in black paper and the children's art is displayed. I also had to do an art auction item piece. We generate funds for our art program through this silent auction. I had the kinders use water color pastels to color hearts and then mounted them between two pieces of glass. That's the last photo. I think it made $60 or $70 (a couple of families got into a friendly bidding war which just benefits the school.) Here are some photos from this year's art night. (Yes, I was pretty tired that night and just recovering from influenza among other things so I don't look my best - so please look at the kids and the art!)
