Here are a few highlights from this past week:
- Congratulations to this week’s Top Dog-Antonio Gilstrap! Read about Antonio’s accomplishments by clicking here.
- For this edition of the Images webzine the club highlighted two artists: Senior Matt Dalton and Junior Molly Boggs. Matt’s surrealist illustrations and Molly’s postmodern poetry are extraordinary. Here is the link to the webzine.
- Check out A.P. Art student, Sarah Pollard’s detail of ribs done in craypas. Her A.P. concentration is called, “Beauty Is Only Skin Deep” which focuses on the human body and that beyond our exteriors, we are all the same underneath.
- Last Monday, December 10th at the School Committee Meeting, AP Scholars were recognized. In addition students in the Pathways Program were featured in this month’s Rockland Public Schools Curriculum Corner. All of our student presenters did an outstanding job.
