Time Capsule

The students viewed the work of Andy Warhol and looked at artists who collect as part of their creative process. They were introduced to the idea of a time capsule in September - and knew they were going to be filling and sealing it in June. The sealed capsules are due on June 11th. Here are some that are already finished.

Here is the list of suggested contents. Students had the final say - only time will tell.

1. Something with “today’s” date on it.
2. What happened in the news this week? 
3. An item of HTHS nostalgia
4. A catalog page of a place where you like to shop (with prices)

My Story Pole at Home in the Garden

My Story Pole found its home in the garden this weekend. Fresh water waiting for its first feathered art lover.  No signs of winter here! Photos of student story poles coming soon.

The Full Tree Bloomage occurred on April 23rd. - Late this year, but worth the wait!
