This year our district is using a new report card. Gone are the checks, pluses, and minuses.  We now have to give numbers, 1,2,3,4; just like the classroom teachers. Also like the classroom teachers, these numbers are based on student's proficiencies compared to  curriculum standards.
Here are the Visual Literacy standards as they are expressed on the new report card: Uses art vocabulary and language; applies creative & critical thinking skills; creates art using a variety of tools, media & processes; understands cultural contexts; understands interdisciplinary connections & uses critical analysis.
Here is the breakdown for the numbers:
4    Exceeding Grade Level Standards
3     Meeting Grade Level Standards
2     Approaching Grade Level Standards
1     Developing Toward Grade Level Standard 

ART to see in the AREA- (so sorry Ms. Cramer will miss this, as she is presenting @ conference but her puppet will be there!

Fall Festival to Benefit Public School Foundation
With Show by PaperHand Puppet Intervention
Sunday, Oct. 29 on the Village Green

at Southern Village from 2-5 PM



A free Halloween-themed interactive show for all ages featuring PaperHand Puppet Intervention will be held on Sunday, Oct. 29 from 2-5 PM at the Village Green at Southern Village. Donation stations will benefit the school programs funded by the Chapel Hill-Carrboro Public School Foundation.
The afternoon will kick-off with a concert by the School of Rock of Chapel Hill House Band and craft activities by Kidzu Children’s Museum. A raffle will be held featuring original art pieces created by seven different art classes from CHCCS. Other raffle prizes include: Boys and Girls Bikes, ​ A Night at Hyatt Place Chapel Hill-Southern Village; Restaurant Gift Cards; Movie Tickets to the Lumina Theater; One Free Month of Music Lessons at School of Rock; and more!
Following the show, everyone is invited to participate in a costume and puppet parade around Market Street.
The Chapel Hill-Carrboro Public School Foundation is a local non-profit that supports all 20 district schools through programming, awards, scholarships, supply drives, and grants. Last year, PSF provided over $400,000 to CHCCS.





 In our school district, the elementary art teachers and the school specials teachers are meeting and working on how to implement all the new changes in a way that makes sense. At this beginning stage, it may be hard for all of us to agree what the evidence would look like for each of the numbers .

It is important to note, that  behavior is no longer part of the new grading system. We hope you can be patient with us, as we learn how best to use this new system.

Thanks for visiting our Seawell Art Page- please feel free to contact me at: or leave voicemail for me at 919-967-4343x33233
