Everyday the work of Ms. Wallace's students astound her. She says her goal in art class is to give her students memorable experiences and not just teach lessons. Her philosophy to teaching art is to let her students have a good time and explore art through the projects she guides them through. Her favorite projects are the multicultural ones, as for example, the Chinese Lantern project her classes recently completed in honor of the Lunar New Year and Tet Festival, celebrated February 15 through February 18.
As you know, preparing for a successful future, begins before your child enters Kindergarten and we want to invite all prospective families to join us at one of our open house events! Additionally, we want to ensure that students have the best transition possible to Middle School by visiting the campus, meeting the staff, and learning about all the wonderful programs our schools have to offer. Learn more about our upcoming Open Houses hosted by our schools to welcome you and your children to Franklin-McKinley and support 6th grade students transitioning to Middle School.
