April 20th Cultural Enrichment Program

The Cultural Enrichment program yesterday was awesome! The program started with a blank canvas and ended with a great painting that will be hung at IHM.  Be sure to ask your kids about how rythmn and percussion influences their art and ask them to perform "This Old Man" for you.  The Gindhart-Tharp-Perrin group will be back for an all-school show (People Paint and Percussion) on May 13th. 

The snapfish album that I sent also has a picture of the painting that the K-2nd graders completed on Monday.  Check out the pictures and short video below to see the program in action!

Upcoming Events

IHM Cultural Enrichment Committee Announces Spring Programs

Our Spring Cultural Enrichment Program will be presented by the Tharp-Perrin Gindhart Artists.  We will have a total of 4 performances (K-2 April 18th), (3-5 April 20th) and (6-8 April 25th) followed by an all-school People, Paint and Percussion performance on May 13th. Students will produce a 4ft. x 4ft. painting in each of these workshops/performances.  The art will be hung at IHM!  This program will be a great introduction to composition elements, percussion, rhythm, line, color, form, contrast and unity.  Make sure to ask your children about what they learned!

I have/ I need

Please post items that you have--costumes for classroom plays or activities, communion items, etc.

What Can We Do With This Blog?

Hi IHM Parents,

I thought we should try an interactive forum for questions and concerns.  Have you ever spent hours making an Indian/pilgrim costume only to find out that someone else had one that you could have used? Do you have questions about assignments? Looking for ideas for classroom parties? Looking for supplies for a project?  Want to announce an upcoming school event? This blog will be a great resource for us!  I am new to blogging, so if you have any experience/suggestions I would love to hear them!
