Did you know "Dot Day" is September 15? Our elementary art teachers and students took Dot Day one step further this year with a week-long celebration! Each grade created special dot art inspired by different artists. Students were encouraged to hang the dots in their windows so others could see and be inspired by their art.
To prepare for this fun distance learning activity, student artists watched a Dot Day Story video and listened to this song. Elementary art teacher Amy Orahood said, "The message is about believing in yourself — your tiniest idea can grow and grow and grow. So make a mark and see where it takes you!"
