1. Academics Spotlight
Student in Mrs. Warrens art classes hosted a TASK party. A TASK party is an event in which party members draw tasks (written by the host) from a bucket, perform the task, write a new one, and continue. The tasks can be as wildly imaginative as possible, and as craft-like as you want. 

Some of our Tasks included:
Build a cardboard tower that touches the ceiling, make a mask that has magical powers, build a musical instrument, create a shadow puppet show, or m ake a heartfelt present and give it to someone

It was random, fun and taught taught kids how to use creativity to improvise and play.
