Art transcends cultures and generations… Our 5th grade students learned about Japanese artist and printmaker Katsushika Hokusai, from the Edo period. He is best known for the woodblock print series “Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji” which includes the iconic print “The Great Wave off Kanagawa”. Each student was given a small square to copy using oil pastels. They were not able to see the other squares, so the final artwork was a surprise! And what a beautiful surprise it was!
Last week for their last days of school, Ms. Vargas’ 4th grade class received some very special mail… a letter from the President and First Lady of the United States themselves!
Woohoo! We did it! We completed another great school year, and made some wonderful memories along the way! We’d like to wish everyone in the Awty community a safe and restful, yet fun summer break.
What better way to celebrate our last school day than with car parades honoring our Primary School graduates? Congrats again and see you next year!
That’s a wrap for our 5th grade/CM2 students! Their Lower School experience is coming to an end; off they go to a new chapter in Middle School next year.
It’s graduation time for our Kindergarten/Grande Section students! We celebrated and wished them Bon Voyage as they crossed the bridge towards their new 1st grade/CP journey next year.
