ARTIST SPOTLIGHT – SHANNON CENTER
Shannon is working diligently on her art portfolio this year in hopes of earning an art scholarship. Shannon attended National Portfolio Day at the School of the Art Institute in Chicago where she met with admissions advisors and was able to speak to representatives about several art school possibilities. Shannon is primarily a digital artist, but is also fluent in other media. Currently, she finished a beautiful pen and ink drawing that will be going in the art showcase soon and is showcased here. Keep up the good work, Shannon! We are excited to see where your art takes you.
HIGH SCHOOL MYTHOLOGY
Mrs. Holok’s Fantasy class wrapped up their Harry Potter unit with a mythological pumpkin decorating and writing contest. Students then rolled the pumpkins down Buck Hill in a Hogwarts House point competition. Early in the year students are broken into Harry Potter houses and complete various tasks for points. Team Gryffindor was victorious in the pumpkin roll, but Team Hufflepuff won the ultimate year one House Cup Trophy.
