arts and crafts around the world.

A couple weeks ago we put on another one of our family art nights, Arts and Crafts Around the World. Teachers and support staff led 10 different activities for students and families that were inspired by the wide variety of cultures we have in our school community.

It was a lot of fun participating in as a teacher. It's always wonderful to see our students working with members of their families to create in a low stress setting.

Below are just a few photos from the evening:)

 I hosted Chinese shadow puppets in my room. I want to do more of this!

One of our 5th grade teachers and her quilting association shared their gorgeous works with our school community too:)


  1. This looks like a lot of fun. About how many participants do you have on one of these nights???

  2. On average for these we get between 300-500. Our end of the year art show and hands on activities brings at least 600-700 on campus!
