And here’s some current news from the schools:
Incline Elementary School
The new Art Program is up and running at IES!
IEF is funding a dedicated art teacher for all K5 students and their first project was a smashing success!
Students studied “natural disasters” in their English and Library classes. The fourth graders read about the Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai of Great Wave Fame. Then they made their own block prints out of legos in the makerspace class and used them in the art class to create their own artistic representation of a wave. It was an amazing display of the cross-curricular learning happening at IES.
Incline Middle School
IMS held their annual Spelling Bee last week.. Here are the winners: (first, second, third, respectively)
6th grade: Isabella, Mack, Ninel
7th grade: DJ, Maddie, Nick
8th grade: Aspen, Alva, Sky
The Incline Middle School Jazz Band attended the “Jazz in the Schools” event at UNR last weekend.
The students even got to have a private “clinic” with the entire UNR jazz faculty. Stayed tuned for photos!
And speaking of the IMS jazz band….
The IMS students are evidently quite multi-dimensional. They have banded together (sorry for the pun) to write a rap song! This is part of the Trash to Treasure project and the song will be used to accompany the public service announcement being put together by students in the IMS video production class.
Incline High School
