Extra Library Helpers Needed

The end of the school year is so close! Last week was the last for library checkouts so there will be LOTS of books coming in. Our wonderful librarians could use some additional help with re-shelving books and reading the shelves to make sure books are in order. If you are interested in helping, please contact Debbie at 708-263-7646 or deb.kummer@sbcglobal.net.

Artist in Residence – Volunteers Needed!

Posted Mar 14, 2019 | Category: Volunteers

Ames Parents/Guardians-

I am excited to announce that this year’s Artist in Residence* is Spudnik Press.  Spudnik staff will be at Ames THIS Friday, March 15 for a kick-off assembly during students’ lunch periods. If possible, please make sure your child stays at school for lunch on Friday.

Spudnik will return NEXT WEEK to teach screen printing during regularly scheduled art classes. If you are available during your child’s art class, please sign up to volunteer using the instructions in red at the bottom of this message. If you don’t know when your child has art, the link lists the volunteer spots by grade/teacher name. NOTE: 4th and 5th grade students will have an additional 30 minute art session on Friday morning to work with Spudnik on combining all students’ artwork into a collaborative art installation.

Lastly, on the day your child will be screen printing, please send him/her to school in clothes and shoes that can get messy!

If you have any questions, please contact me at kjmarrero2000@gmail.com.

Thank you,

Kim Marrero, Artist in Residence committee chair


*Artist in Residence is a unique experience funded by Ames PTA using money raised at the 2017 Fall Festival/Auction for Cultural Arts.
