I want to thank all of you for supporting and encouraging your young artists. A special thank you for all that were able to place an order with Square 1 Art. I enjoyed seeing all of the student art featured on the merchandise.
The competition came to a close at the end of December. I got the orders counted and it is OFFICIAL Mrs. Hossink's class won the competition for the highest participation! They won an extra clay project that will be made in the very near future! Yay for a clay party! I also added another incentive and said each grade level would have a little surprise for the class with the highest participation. Today each student in the winning classes got a "WoW" ticket to enter in the school's weekly drawing along with their choice of candy. Many kids made their choice based on which candy was bigger than the other or which would last the longest. Tomorrow I am going to add some clementines into the mix of candy for the kids to pick as a healthy sweet choice. It will be interesting to see what gets picked. :)
The winners are as follows:
K: Mrs. Horn
1st: Mrs. Hossink
2nd: Mrs Chambers
3rd: Mrs. Haagsma
4th: Ms. Uthe
5th: Mr. Bolhuis
There were a few grades with a tie. The winning class was then determined by which class had the highest in sales.
Again thank you so much for all of your suport!
