Connors' Corner

Greetings to all new and returning South School families! 

My name is Mrs. Connors and I am your child’s art educator. My school contact information is mconnors@londonderry.org  which is the best way to communicate with me. You can also leave a message at 432-6956 x 5307. You will also find my Connors’ Corner columns in the Hawk Talk newsletter and on my teacher page at the school’s website.

Also this year, we welcome back part-time art educator Mrs. Cowan. She also works at MT and North schools as well. The best way to contact her is through email at: kcowan@londonderry.org

Here are some of the Visual Arts programs at South:

1.  Art to Remember Fundraiser 

 2.  School Community Art Project

3.  Currier Museum of Art Field Trips-
5th Grade  

4.  Annual Student Art Show in May
    

Each year we  set our date for the Annual Student Art Show in May from 6-8 p.m.. It’s a fun family event where you can stop by and see artwork on display from all of our learners over the course of the school of year. Here are some things to keep in mind:

  • As always, in preparation for the art show, Grades 3, 4 and 5 will be keeping their artwork in their portfolios for the entire school year. This allows these learners to choose which work of art to enter into the show.

  •  Learners in Grades 1 and 2 will bring their work home on a monthly basis and eventually one art piece will be selected for the show.

  • The month of October means that learners in Grades 1-4 will create a clay project which will be fired in the school’s kiln in mid-November. The goal is to have learners bring their clay art home by Thanksgiving or shortly thereafter to share with their families.

  • Grade 5 learners will create their unique clay pinch pots in March which will then be on display at the Annual Student Art Show before they bring them home afterwards.
