A few weeks ago, the 7th grade art students created amazing pieces of art. Their project was to create a personalized color wheel. One student, Melissa Hall, created a wonderful design of a volleyball surrounded by splatters of colors. When asked what her inspiration was she said, I love volleyball and loved the idea of splatter paint also." The projects can be seen in the encore pod of the middle school.

Alexis Waddingham drew and painted an elephant with colors coming out of its trunk, creating a heart. She drew and painted this beautiful picture in February. The colors are vibrant. Waddingham stated, It was normal...it was just another assignment." I do not believe that the painting was just another assignment because of her hard work done with the colors, the body, and the overall feel of the painting. Waddingham got the idea for the painting from friends giving her ideas that were very cool and creative, and the idea of an elephant was already on the paper. She made the painting in the art room in Eileen Johnson Middle School. If you get the chance, go down to the elective pod and see the painting.
A group of ORCA Exchange Students will be coming from France June 17 - July 7. There are 3 boys and 3 girls, ages 15-16, needing a place to stay. Several of the students play tennis and several play musical instruments. They all speak some English. There is a chaperon that is fluent that comes with them. You do not need to speak French to be a host family. They come with their own spending money and medical insurance. Their main reason for coming is to experience the American teenage way of life and practice their English. All you need to do is welcome them into your home as part of the family. If you would like to host a student or know some one who would (they can live within 150 miles of Billings) or if you would like more information, please contact Jan at 670-8137 or e-mail email@example.com.
