Welcome to the Virtual Art Room 2020-2021 School Year!
Greetings Humboldt Families,
Singing in my Patti LaBelle voice, "Somebody misses their students. Oh, Oh, Oh! Somebody misses their students. I think you know who it is... it's me darlings, it's me!" Yes, I miss you so much and I am excited about seeing you all and interacting in our new virtual classroom. We are going to digitally hold hands and get through this together. There are so many amazing things we can do in our new virtual classroom and am I here to make sure we navigate these waters successfully.
Parents we listened to your feedback and have moved everything to one place. The Virtual Art Room has joined the Microsoft Teams platform. Students are now able to access our class with just a click of their mouse. They will be able to go in and out of their class teams without ever leaving Microsoft Teams. During the first two weeks of class, students will engage in fun activities as they learn how to navigate the Microsoft Teams platform. We will establish a solid foundation for online etiquette, procedures, and expectations. We will also begin our journey of getting to know one another building healthy relationships during that time and for the rest of our school year together.
Please see the section below to learn some things about me and to get an idea of our class goals for this school year and other important announcements. I look forward to seeing you all during our Meet the Teacher event this evening, starting at 3:00 pm.

“The arts are an essential element of education, just like reading, writing, and arithmetic…music, dance, painting, and theater are all keys that unlock profound human understanding and accomplishment.”
-William Bennett, Former US Secretary of Education.
An Amazing Opportunity for Our Students!
The Regional Arts Commission and Student Treasures Publishing partnering with me to support our students for the 2020-2021 school year. Our class portfolios will be published on the RAC website and Student Treasures Publishing will provide a published book of our student's best work. We will begin advertising in April 2021. We have a publish date set for May 7, 2021. This has always been one of my goals, helping students have a voice and presence in the art community, and to build strong community partnerships. I want the students to understand that they do not have to wait until they become adults to follow their dreams or have an impact on their community.
Parents, this is an amazing opportunity for our students. Please help me support our students by making sure they complete and turn in all projects, show up to class every day, on time, and are ready to go for it! Let's get it!
