WMS students learn the value of recycling in Mrs. Katlyn Arnold's Art classes.  In recent weeks, students have been utilizing recycled materials when learning about history and the world around them.  For instance, in one project, students created recycled cardboard heads that resemble inspiring people who changed the world, such as Martin Luther King, Jr., Gandhi, Einstein, and Bob Marley, among others.  In a separate project, students created cardboard self-portraits.  In Mrs. Arnold's class, students enjoy conserving resources while combining their imagination and knowledge.

Elementary students at Paxton School spent Halloween in Egypt. The high school Humanities class created an Egyptian Exhibit that allowed elementary students to meet archeologists who showed them an archeological dig site and taught them about hieroglyphics. The archeologists (tour guides) then led the elementary students through the Temple of Horus, into a pyramid, past a pharaoh’s throne, by the Great Sphinx, and allowed them to peek into King Tutankhamun’s sarcophagus. Those on the tour were able to leave questions for the Humanities students to answer. Submitted by Kalli McMillan.
