Dear Royal Oak Families,
All students are creating new lessons this month. Remember to check their backpacks for their creative projects. All students will be using the Ipads to create different technology based art lessons like a stop-motion video. The students will also be using the IPADS to upload their art to Artsonia (if you are participating) and will be writing reflections about their art on the webpage. Remember to join your child’s fan club and invite family and friends to join too. The kids love this!
