1812 Field Trip Information

by Nathan McBee on September 3, 2021

Posted in: 8th Grade

Our 8th grade field trip to Mississinewa 1812 is approaching quickly and I want to get as much information out to you as possible. The field trip will be for 8th grade students only and will take place on October 1st, 2021. We will be traveling to the Mississinewa Battlefield (located in Jalapa, near Marion, Indiana). We will be leaving the school at approximately 8:15am and returning close to 3pm. All 8th graders who have turned in their permission slips and the $15.00 fee to me will be attending this trip. ALL permission slips must be turned into me no later than September 24th. Any student who has not completed the permission slip will not be going. IN ADDITION, any student who maintains a disciplinary issue, WILL NOT be allowed to attend, and will more than likely be reassigned to an alternative schedule for that day.

There have been a lot of calls and emails from parents about the dress code, money, cameras, chaperones…. The dress code for the day is the grey polo shirts that may be worn with jeans or uniform pants and they may also wear tennis shoes (HIGHLY ADVISED), due to the location we will be in. They can bring whatever money you wish to give them however no money is required. Lunches must be in a bag, which can be thrown away with the student’s name clearly marked on it. There WILL NOT be any areas for refrigerated items. Any student wishing to take a school provided lunch MUST advise me of that when they turn their permission slip and money in. Cameras and cell phones are permitted however the students have been given strict instructions on the usage of such devices and they have been advised of the consequences of disciplinary action if abused. There is no need for any chaperones, we have plenty of teachers going to supervise this event, however I would like to thank the several parents who have asked to volunteer as chaperones.

If there are any questions, please feel free to contact me via email nmcbee@goapa.org. If you have an emergency while we are at the field trip site, please contact the school directly and they will be able to make contact with me.

Thank You,

Lt. Nathan McBee

We have a 4 day in person week! Monday is Labor day!

3D art is finishing paper quilling, they have done a really awesome job and took their time.  Tuesday we will finish up and begin Seasonal Tree work with butcher paper.

2D art is working their own rendition of the art of Frank Big Bear.  He is a Native American artist that combines surrealism and cubism.  He illustrated meaningful parts of his life into his art.

Careers in art- Careers in Art has been working on a power point presentation over their selected job of interest. They will be presenting this to the class this week.

6th Grade Art- 6th grade art has just finished up a Weave paste composition. Next we will be using our weaving skills to create a pen cup!

7th Grade- 7th grade has been studying art through history. They began looking into the symbolism of the Cherry blossom in Asian culture.  Their task this week is to paint a trunk of a cherry blossom and make their blossoms with tissue paper and paint.

8th grade- 8th grade just finished learning the life of Monet.  They were tasked with the job of sketching a work of his and recreating it on a canvas using Tissue paper. Some have finished, while others are taking their time. Those finished will be doing a tiny project to bridge the gap

Hope everyone has a great week!
