Grand Rising family and welcome to my page! Parents and students will find information about assignments that are being posted on a weekly basis in ClassDojo (for my PreK3 & 4 Artist), Google Classroom (for my K-3rd grade Artist) and via our website under Posts (located to the right side of the screen). I am excited and honored to share my gifts with your children. Art and children hold a very sacred place in my heart :-). Parents please submit photos or videos of your child's completed master pieces in their assigned class or they can be sent to me via email. I look forward to having a FANTASTIC virtual school year with you all. #RESILIENCE - the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness.
