Welcome to room B309, our lovely (still feels new) room located in the renovated wing of Strath Haven Middle School. My students meet here on a daily basis for a 12-week period until they move to another special area, health/phys.ed. or music.
Sixth Grade art students have already decorated their portfolios, where they will store their work until the end of the fine arts cycle. During their time here, they will have an opportunity to create art using a wide variety of tools and materials. Art class at the middle school level can be challenging, but with my direction and their strong effort, sixth grade students are able to work above and beyond their initial expectations.
Every day, students should come prepared for class with a pencil. All other materials will be supplied here.
My grading system is very heavily weighted toward effort. It is my expectation that students come to class prepared to work and ready to give me their best effort during art period. With that effort, comes success!
Students who are unable to finish the assignment within the class time allotted, may arrange to come in during lunch or after school to complete it. This will not result in a lower grade, however, all assignments must be completed.
I hope that your child's time in my classroom is happy and successful!
