Magnet Open House

The school that Rachel and Hannah attend is one of the few remaining Magnet schools. It's a public school that gives attention to a special subject in addition to their regular studies. Our school is a Magnet school for the visual and performing arts. Which means in these times of budget cuts where art and performances have been cut from the budget, our school still sets aside time for both.

This morning, the school hosted a Magnet School Open House. All throughout the school campus, there was artwork displayed, performances going on, things to see and do. All a result of things our kids have learned over the course of the last year. This was the first year I had two girls participating and it was fun to see the different things their teachers displayed, etc.Rachel had her snowman artwork on display and she was very proud of her snowman. Rachel's class participated in the morning by demonstrating to a class of third graders how to make a rainbow with curly ribbon. They did a great job at being the teacher to kids that were older than they were. It was a fun and jam packed morning and I'm so glad I was able to go about the school seeing all the things our talented students did throughout the school year.

Great snowman, Rachel!! I didn't even know there were any Magnet schools in our area. That's very cool.
