• Artist of the Day--Xitlaly Ortiz

    Hands up for drawings are from the Blind Contour Drawing Exercise. Students were introduced to the element : Line. Students were asked to draw their hand in different poses. The trick is that they aren't allowed to look down at their paper, hence the name Blind Contour. This develops hand eye coordination and drawing from observation. Art teacher Ms. Tremor had this to say Xitlaly Ortiz: very accurate drawings, she filled the space , took the time to commit to the exercise and her discipline shows in the work! Try on your own this weekend. No peeking until you are done

  • Footballand Volleyball conditioning is a GO!

    We have been given the greenlight to resume conditioning on Monday. Please plan on arriving by 430 for the entry procedure and screening. We will start at five; however we want to strongly discourage anyone from arriving late. We will be done at six and with the staggered dismissal everyone will be out of the Stadium by 615pm Please remember the guidelines from the summer are still in place. No one is allowed inside the stadium except for coaches and athletes and we are not allowed to have anyone congregate in the parking lot afterwards. As it was in July please self check at home for symptoms and if your students or anyone is not feeling well please air on the side of caution and stay at home. Also we are asking anyone who does not attend to communicate directly with the coach so that any unknown absences do not cause concern amongst everyone else. Please reply to this message to confirm you will be there on Monday. GO SPARTANS!! We will resume conditioning next week (Mon,Wed,& Fri) for boys & girls. *Please join the REMIND by texting @2020pvvb to 81010, for team info & updates. 🏐

  • Artist of the Day; Stephania Salazar

    Is there anything Stephania can't do with a basketball? Today is picture proof. Here's photography teacher, Mr. Pinto noting that his sophomore student used a shallow depth of field to create visual interest in this picture of a family member for her vertical rule of thirds assignment. We love the foreground, background ourselves. And the continued ability of students to find artistic inspiration and execution so close to home. We are thinking of putting together a gallery soon so as to demonstrate and highlight the many striking images and creations. Make some art of your own this weekend
