Mission Statement

We believe that we all possess a level of creativity.  Our goal is to develop that gift in a positive environment for our students and bring them to an appreciation and understanding of this God given gift.

Grading Policy for 5 thru 8

All art projects will be graded using a "rubric" as an assessment tool.  Rubrics provide a guide for assigning quantitative values to various levels of student performance in a particular area of work.  They allow students to clearly understand exactly what is required of them.  Peer partners may work together to help each other assess which level of performance has been attained and determine what is needed to move to a higher level.  Scores are earned in each category, and total scores will translate into points.  Students will be given points based on work habits, originality, organizational skills, time management, creativity, neatness and presentation.  Homework assignments are to be handed in on time.  Late work will not be accepted.   Diocese of Camden Guidelines which will include:
