  • Christmas Ornament Art Project Hits the Mark

    My students came back from art today with the most awesome sphere Christmas ornaments! We are starting our unit in Geometry today and it was so cool to see that they had already been working on it in Art! I appreciate all the hard work Mrs Wilson put into this project because I’m sure it wasn’t easy with only one adult! The kids were so excited! Thanks Mrs Wilson! -- Mrs. Culbreth
