🌟Student Creations Highlight🌟
This week we are sharing student creations! The two top photos, "Hear Me Roar," and "I'm Super Me," are from 2nd and 3rd grade campers who made art this summer with Ms. Harley. The bottom left photo is from a Family Fun Night where campers like Jennie Davis made healthy lion snacks using graham crackers, pretzels, and peanut butter. The bottom right photo is from 3rd grade, where campers created a rainbow-like collar necklace inspired by artwork from the Maasai Tribe in Kenya, East Africa.
