-BRUCE ARANT visits Huntington

On December 19th Bruce Arant, author and illustrator, visited all students during our December day 0 activities.  Bruce is the author of “Simpson’s Sheep Won’t Go to Sleep” and “Simpson’s Sheep Just Want to Sleep”.  We’re lucky that Bruce lives in Omaha so he is a great local resource for us.  He taught students how to draw all kinds of facial expressions that they can use in their own artwork.  And, for the younger students, he walked them through the process of publishing a book.  This inspiration will hopefully inspire our students to draw and write themselves.  Thank’s Bruce.

– Capital City Cloggers come to Huntingon

On our last day 0, February 27th, we had the privilege of hosting the Capitol City Cloggers.  They performed to all grade levels and taught us some of the history of clogging as well as some of the various steps.  We even got to dance some ourselves.  Three of the dancers were Mrs. Conway’s (1st grade teacher) daughters.  We are so very appreciative of them giving their time, energy and talents so our students could experience this art.  Thank You!
