Activities and Organizations

Art Studio

Art Studio is an after school art enrichment program for 6th, 7th, & 8th grade students.  The students apply for this program in September of each year. 24 students are selected for the group. The students meet on Mondays after school for one hour to explore different art techniques and media.  Students have the opportunity to try new assignments and enter competitions.  All Art Studio students participate in the annual Art Fair by working at the Art Booths.  Students also earn funds for art projects by having themselves "adopted" by a staff member each year. During the year the students will make special art gifts for the staff member that adopted them.  In spring the group takes a trip to Artist and Display (art store) and visits a location to do sketch work.  We celebrate the end of the year with our ice cream sculpture party! 

Battle of the Books

The final competition, sponsored by WEMTA, occurs during the last week of February.  Students selected for the final team (4 competitors and 2 alternates) gather to take the online battle together.  Schools across the state participate in the battle and results are typically posted the week after the battle.
