News: 1st Grade Art

October 22, 2018

Fall is in the air at Mater Christi with pumpkins as the focus in Ms. Lee’s first grade classroom.  With the help of a parent, artist M. C. Baker, the first graders used recycled materials to create a pumpkin art project.  As a Mercy school we are constantly trying to find ways to adopt more environmentally sustainable practices. Art and poetry were the focus of this festive fall project to provide an engaging experience for the first grade.  Through this hands on project, these young learners passion for art, writing, and being environmentally conscious were sparked.

Our 1st graders worked really hard and this is the remarkable result.
