THE BIG NEWS: Middle School Arts Night!
Story by Joslyn and Micayla, Photos by Micayla & Mrs. Brownlee
TCEA held an Arts Integration on November 14th and 16th. On November 14th was STEAM, Visual Arts, and music. On November 16th was Theatre and Film, and Dance. Mrs. Brownlee’s class exhibited artwork and sold T-shirts that were 100% Chameleon-Made. Mr. Kline’s class produced monologues and scenes while Mr. Haslem presented the projects his students worked hard on in his class. The project focus was around using the Makey Makey and Ozobots. Mrs.Brownlee showed film of her students working on drawing, painting, and thanks to Mrs. Brownlee they even got to work on street art. Mrs. Payton had her students sing the songs they had been working on, with support from Encore Ensemble. Meanwhile Ms. Norris and her students did a dance that was student made. We will be looking forward to the second trimester arts night in the future. Special thanks to all the elective teachers and also you, for making this fun night possible!

Mrs. Trojan: My favorite part would probably be just seeing the kids every day.
Crystin: Do you have any tips for us students to make your job easier?
