This Month's Featured School: Locust Street Elementary School, Columbia
Teachers: Ms. Koonse, Ms. Norris, and Ms. Elder
This month's student art is a group effort built around a science/ELA arts integration project based on the August 21, 2017 total eclipse. The work was created by the 4th grade students of Locust Street Elementary School, Columbia. The teachers are Ms. Koonse, Ms. Norris, and Ms. Elder. The arts integration coordinator who facilitated the project is Gennie Pfannenstiel.
Started in 2004, the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education has invited public schools throughout Missouri to submit samples of their students' artwork. The art is displayed in the Department's main office in Jefferson City and in the room where the State Board of Education holds its regular monthly meetings. Artwork from each featured school is showcased for a month. The same artwork is now featured here. For privacy reasons, the full names of the student artists will not be published here.
Schools that will be featured in the Virtual Art Gallery are already scheduled for several months in advance. Please do not submit unsolicited artwork. For more information, contact:
