Students in grades 1-5 at the Gibbons School began the year in art class with a lesson on turning mistakes into something else based on the book "Beautiful Oops". Last year’s unclaimed paintings/drawings as well as paint spills on paper were transformed into some creative results. This was a great way to remind artists that when they make a mistake to look at it as an opportunity to make it into something beautiful, funny, cool, etc.
Lots of smiles from students during recess on the Gibbons playground!

It is also a time the grade 3-5 class comes together to celebrate the fifth graders who will be moving on to the O'Donnell Middle School.

The Gibbons School office had some extra help recently. Tiwa, a second grader, and Shaylin, a fourth grader, got to serve as co-principals for the day! The 175 Gibbons students who completed a project for the school's "Black History Month Challenge" in February were entered into a raffle to be principal for the day and this was the grand prize. Tiwa and Shaylin are pictured here with Gibbons Principal David Guglia.
