4th/5th Grade - Young Ameritowne is a simulation of real life economics. Students in fourth and fifth grade learn about banking, business skills, and government in the classroom prior to their culminating field trip at Young Ameritowne. At Young Ameritowne they put all their skills together for a day, working at actual shops, earning real Young Ameritowne money and experiencing the rules and laws they have developed in the proceeding days. This week students wrote speeches for their primary elections and voted on candidates to run for the general election. Students worked in campaign groups to develop slogans for posters and fliers. The final candidates for Judge and Mayor must give a speech to all our Young Ameritowne citizens.  Then each citizen proceeded to the polls to cast their ballot. We are proud of all our citizens and all those who ran. Congratulations to our Mayor Lillie and our Judge Elly!

6th Grade Art - 6th grade went to the Denver Museum of Nature and Science to the space exhibit on Wednesday. In art today we talked about how the elements of art give scientists clues to the geologic history of planets. We looked at photos taken from space and talked about what the circles, squiggly lines, straight lines, blobs... in the photos might tell us. Then they each selected a NASA photo as inspiration for an abstract artwork using soft pastels and colored pencils.

7th Grade Art - On Tuesday, Seventh graders learned about the artist Kandinsky. Kandinsky viewed music as the most transcendent form of non-objective art. He felt that musicians could evoke images in listeners' minds merely with sounds. He strove to produce similarly object-free, spiritually rich paintings that alluded to sounds and emotions. Today in art they made art inspired by music.
