This year has been a difficult one; first, I was gone on maternity leave during first semester, and then we moved to Remote Learning for the second semester. I love my job and my students, and having so little time to be able to teach them has been hard on me. My kids truly deserve the best and I hope they know that I am sorry that they haven't gotten a full year of art. With that being said, my students need to be recognized for the artwork they have created. Since we can't have our Fine Arts Night, I thought I'd try to acknowledge their efforts in this format. I am still doing Outstanding Art Student awards - the winners are at the end of presentation. Thank you! Wendy Peters, High School Art Teacher https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/e/2PACX-1vTTn2JjIbPqzR2q7MtZIchLtFYNPrr_Sr4kC3ra5B_7gulkJPLgJRrihEHSEHLEslA7jH9KuD1nX7pk/pub?start=false&loop=false&delayms=3000 *Please do not edit this presentation.
