8th Grade Art Class
Lee Amborn's 3rd Hour Art Class took on Vincent Van Gogh and won! The class did a Segmented Painting as a class project for the final week of the 9 weeks. Students took a poster of Van Gogh's "Starry Night" and divided it into 16 equal segments. Then each student drew a number from a bowl and that number corresponded to a segment of the painting. The students then had to work with other students that had a segment that shared a common side with their segment. This was necessary to ensure that the images lined up. Once the drawing coordination was complete they were told to complete their section by interpreting the colors on their own, that is why some of the segments are darker than others. Overall, the student's and Lee were very pleased with the outcome!

Your experience here will be filled with numerous opportunities and challenges. Young teens and pre-teens grow and change, emotionally and physically, faster now than at any other time in their lives. Students are now in a school community with many more students than they’re used to. To help make this transition, we encourage kids to get involved in any one of our numerous clubs and co-curricular activities, and get out there and meet new friends! Do your best and enjoy your middle school years!
Everything we stand for and do here in the Middle School revolves around one word:RESPECT. Respect starts within yourself and extends to those around you. By helping us create a safe, positive, respectful school environment, you’ll find that everyone here will feel better about himself or herself. If you feel good about yourself and where you are, you’ll be better able to achieve academic success and social success as lifelong learners and responsible citizens.
All the adults in this building are here because we love to work with young adolescents and will do everything possible to help them achieve success. The outstanding teachers and support staff truly want all students to reach their potential; and with all of us working together toward this common goal, you can!
Mr. Roou, Principal
