Art in Action's Atelier d'Artistes 2013
Carolyn Johnson, ABC7 News, with Students from Abbott Middle School
Abbott was well represented by six students, who are members of the Abbott Art in Action Club, at last week’s 30th Anniversary of this notable high-quality art program. The founder, Judy Sleeth, had a vision to provide a program where students would learn to express their ideas, expand their cultural and visual understanding, and develop the creative confidence to address the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century. Our students, Austin Lautenbach, Grace Ballard, Carolin Jia, Clara Coady, Hannah Plackowski, and Leonardo Vilchez were interviewed by ABC news anchor and Master of Ceremonies Carolyn Johnson at the March 4th event, Atelier d’Artistes 2013, in Menlo Park. Thanks to Art in Action Product Manager, Lisa Tsuruoka and parents Erin Coady and Marcella Ballard for their commitment and support.
From the Principal's Pen
How wonderful to be at a school where children are happy! This school year has really made all of us on the Abbott staff believers that a school’s climate and culture can change. We have had multiple days of students following rules and meeting expectations for behavior and academics. While we are not 100% in every area, we have certainly started the year with the most positive learning environment that I have experienced in my twelve years as Abbott’s principal. Thank you to parents who are instilling the value of education and promoting positive attitudes towards school, teachers, and fellow classmates.
Precita Eyes Murals
Pictures from the field trip to the Precita Eyes Murals in SF’s Mission District. It was a great trip, and the students seemed to really enjoy it! (See more pictures here)
The Principal’s Essential Theme for April and May is BE KIND. Random acts of kindness go a long way and both parties feel good. Practice them often and see how good you feel! For those of you who are not familiar with the term “Random Acts of Kindness”, it simple means you go out of your way to be kind or do something nice for someone else. Mrs. Ennon
Spring cleaning is in the air and these students were doing just that. Last Saturday, supervised by teacher Tom Haycock, these students earned Positive Points for a job well done!
