**Parents, please note: Students will begin their art unit this week. If you have not replenished markers and/or crayons since the beginning of the year, I'm asking that you do so now. The students will be studying a variety of artists and will be experimenting with different mediums. In addition to markers and crayons, they will be painting with acrylic paints and watercolors, drawing with pastels, and cutting shapes with scissors. Art work can be viewed during "Art at the Hills" on March 7th. Art portfolios will be sent home shortly after that.
