Fine Arts Week Celebration

Thank you Marshwood Education Foundation and Central School PTO for an amazing Fine Arts Week! Our week with eco-artist Miss Cynthia was over before we were ready. Students had a blast creating animal habitats and more in the outdoor classroom. Even a little rain couldn't dampen our spirits! In the gym, all classes got to try out our new climbing wall... what fun! Ms. Poli made nature journals with the students that were decorated with sticks and nature objects found around their homes. In the music room, preK and K friends learned about thunderstorm soundscapes and created their own using drums. The first grade friends learned about bird calls and made their own binoculars with Maine Audobon Society member, Anne Watson. Second grade friends mastered maypole and folk dances with South Berwick resident, Kris Bisson while the third grade students created soundscapes using Garageband. Our eight day Fine Arts Week ended with a celebration that included reflections, dancing and a slide show. To view the slide show, click here. Many thanks to ALL our volunteers, including the high school students from Marshwood and Berwick Academy for helping us get our supplies ready!
