Third Wear MasksThe third grade students participated in the Wiregrass Museum of Art's Smudge program on Friday, November 18th. This semester's program, Theseus and the Minotaur, taught language arts standards by learning about myths, their morals, and how they affect art and culture. 
As part of this program, each class received a copy of The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan. This book is filled with the characters of Greek myth that play their part in a fictional story set in modern times.  Each student also received a heat activated color changing pencil.
This was all made possible by donations from the Southeast Alabama Community Foundation, Support the Arts License Tag Fund, and the Houston County Commission.  Thank You To The Sponsors!!!
