Supply List



Ronald McDonald House Service Project

     During Catholic Schools Week, all classes will be participating in the RMD House Service project.  All students decorate bags that will be filled with water bottles and snacks.    The bags are delivered to the RMD House of Buffalo where they are given to families who stay there.  They send us a letter every year thanking us and telling us how much they enjoy the treats and the artwork as they spend long days in the hospital with their children. 

We pay for the snacks using the money from the "Sport Your Favorite Team" dress down day.  The cost is $2.00 to wear your favorite team's jersey, t-shirt or the color of your favorite team.  OLV sports uniforms or t-shirts are also allowed.

 The dress down day is Monday, January 28th






Parent Portal:  Art grades are posted for grades 3-8 on the Parent Portal.  If you see a zero for your child's grade that means they did not hand anything in.  If you see a 60, that means that they handed their work in but it was incomplete.  Students have more than enough time in class and sometimes take it home to finish.  They NEED to hand work in to me when it is due.  After 1 week late, I will not take work. 

Library:  Students in grades 1-5 take out library books.  Books are due back the following week.  The books must be brought back even if they did not finish reading them.  They can check them out again, but I need to scan them into the computer every week.  Please make sure students are careful with their books and do not lose them.  Lost or damaged books will have to be paid for. 

Binders: Grades 1-8 are required to have 3 ring binders for art. 


If your child is sick or absent for any reason, they need to make up their work from art class.  This is a class and work must be graded.  Please make sure they are doing this.  They only have me once a week, so there is plenty of time to get things done before their next class with me.  They have been reminded repeatedly to see me anytime, on any day to get what they need.


Art Grading Policy

You will be graded on:

  • Following Directions – Clear directions are given for each project and examples are provided.
  • Effort – You are expected to try your best on all projects. Everyone is not good at everything, but giving it your best shot will get you far.
  • Neatness – Take your time and do it right. Draw and color neatly and carefully. NO ERASER MARKS!
  • Handing work in complete and on time – There is no reason for not getting a project in on time. You are given more than enough time in class. If you are not completing projects in class, you are not using your time efficiently. Being responsible is very important.
  • Behavior – You will be graded on your behavior and participation. Most students end up with a 100% participation grade. All you have to do is: Do what you are supposed to be doing, the way you are supposed to be doing it. That means following classroom procedures. Each class you do this, you will receive a +. If your actions and talking interfere with our educational experience, you get a ZERO. For every zero you have, points will be deducted from your participation grade. This is a very easy way to earn a 100.

Middle School Art, Music, and Technology

     Students in middle school will be attending these three classes in trimesters.  6th grade has art the first trimester, 7th grade has music, and 8th grade has technology.  We will rotate the classes each trimester so that they will have all three classes this year, but will focus on only one a trimester.  We feel this will give the students a more focused learning experience.  They will attend these classes 3 days a week.  They will be able to work on projects all week instead of once a week or less often depending on holidays or snow days or in school activities that may cancel a class.  This will keep a flow going with their learning.  We will hopefully see less projects not completed or not handed in and improved grades. 

Pop Tab Collection

I will be collecting the metal tabs from pop cans, beverage cans, soup cans.......anything that has the metal ring tab to open it.  Our collection will be donated to the Ronald McDonald House of Buffalo.  All tabs can be brought to the art room.
