Artists to take over media center at Mount View Middle School

NEIGHBORS

March 03, 1994|By SALLY BUCKLER

Mount View Middle School's students and staff are celebrating National Middle Level Education Month, and they invite the community to join them.

Tomorrow is Arti-fact Celebration, where more than a dozen artists will set up "studios" in the school media center. Students will make informal, one-period visits to the studios to see completed works and works in progress, to speak to the artists and to try some artists' techniques.

Organizer and resource teacher Rick Frankle says the artists and teachers are "planting seeds," which may sprout and grow now or later in the artistic lives of the students. Mr. Frankle has worked with Nancy Goyert of Chaselle, one of Mount View's business partners, to arrange to have the artists participate.

Chaselle will present the artists with gift certificates, and the Mount View PTA will serve lunch to the guests. Parents are invited to share in this activity and to join their children for lunch in the dining room.

On Monday, there will be seventh-grade Family Math Night and a one-day canned food drive for the needy, and lunchtime discussions with the American Association of University Women are scheduled for Friday.

For information about these programs, call 313-5545.

The students in Donna Duke's seventh grade Advisory Class at Glenwood Middle School like to be involved in the community and in environmental projects. They organized the entire seventh grade to collect over 2000 used holiday cards. They sent pictures from the cards to St. Jude's ranch for neglected and abused children, where the pictures are glued onto recycled paper to make new cards to sell to support the ranch.
