Greetings Arts Fam,
  I have some really cool things to share this week...  First, some pics...

Ms. Zema with a student from HLCS- melts my heart.
Durfee's Ms. Terry teaching Acting
Durfee's Nolin Freitas and his GOLD KEY!

Ms. Moniz from Talbot pushing a Close Read of an Escher!

Ms. Souza's Band at Talbot, getting ready for All City!

 Ms. McGillicudy headed over to Tansey this week, and it's like she never left!  Digging into SYNTHESIS in Art with work replicating an artist's style..
Sharing from Ms. McG's Art Cart!


  • O.K., most of you know our beloved Michela Gardner, Morton Music Teacher, and lead teacher for All City Chorus, but take a minute to listen to her sing acapella on her band's new release...  available to listen to on Spotify!  I am listening to it as I write this, and I'm dancing in my yoga ball chair..  Here's the link:  8TRX
  • Our 3rd graders from Fonseca, HLCS, Spencer Borden and Tansey attended the New Bedford Symphony Orchestra's Orchestra as Ecosystem- Symphony as Symbiosis.  Our kids were so excited.  Check out their adorable expressions in the Fall River Herald's coverage of this event: Herald Article
