We are very lucky this year at NIS, co-author of the book Sooper Yooper will be able to visit us again. Mark Newman did an excellent job last year presenting to 6th grade students about the beautiful art in the book. He also had an awesome interactive presentation on the invasive species of the Great Lakes. This ties directly into the 6th grade Science curriculum as well!
We also had two NIS students win the Sooper Yooper art contest last year and one in 2010! This year I hope many of you will participate in the art contest again. At the bottom of this page there is a PDF you can download for details or stop by the art room and I will give one to you. The grand prize is $100.00. You will also have your artwork posted online if you are a winner!
