Maddie displays great symbolism in her artwork. She portrays hard work through her grandfather. He was able to play professional basketball due to his work ethic and dedication. If you work hard and give your best effort towards your passion, you will inevitably reach your highest goals and wildest dreams. –Matt Mendez
Students recently read an excerpt from the graphic novel, Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood, by Iranian author Marjane Satrapi. We studied the use of the symbol as a literary element. Students from the 4th Block World Literature class created their own graphic novel page to show a scene from their life. Jamie Lin from Taiwan used “cars” as his symbol. Can you guess what his “cars” symbolize?
Today was another hard day of work as we get ready for a big project. Students were helping each other and brainstorming as they get ready for their project.
Mr. Ted Zawacki’s Economics class has begun their Stock Market Game. Each student begins with $10,000 for an Investment Portfolio. Their interest lie in the areas of how each company makes its money, the things that affect the performance of the stock and the examination of the company’s income statement, balance sheet and cash flow. The game ends on Friday, November 22nd.
Mrs. Zmarzly’s middle school Language Arts class read the short story, “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” by James Thurber (1939). They then rewrote the short story as a play. Each student submitted scenes from the play, contributed props and scenery, and acted out the play for Mr. Powell’s and Ms. Bradley’s high school English classes. Each student then wrote both concrete poetry and diamante poetry to describe the life of our poor hero, Walter Mitty.
The beginning art classes have painted the same still-life in two medias. They learned that acrylic paint and water color paint act differently and create a different look to the same subject.
