Eighth Grade Update

{ Thank you Ms. Puanani and Ms. Erica }

Grade Eight took advantage of our sunny weather by heading into Portland. After a birthday breakfast for one of the students, complete with gluten-free pancakes, they headed to The Portland Art Museum for the afternoon. Most of their time was spent in the north wing, which houses the museum’s permanent collection. The students were allowed to enjoy the museum at their own pace, although they were asked to take note of landscapes and cloud formations in the art work. The eight grade class has been painting many landscapes in their art classes and the cloud study is a foreshadowing to their upcoming Meteorology Block this spring. The trip ended with a quiet sketching period before heading back to Hillsboro. The class had a wonderful time and look forward to their next trip in January.
