  • ART CLASSROOM NEWS

    Good Afternoon,

    This is Ms. Baumann, the Art teacher at Cactus Canyon Junior High. I am emailing to provide you with information about online educational resources that are being provided for your student for Art class. The activities will be posted on your student's Google Classroom for Art which they should already have joined, as we use this often in regular classroom learning. If your student does not have a code I will include those below and they are on my teacher site as well, with a link to Google Classroom. 

    The activity for next week (March 30th - April 3rd) will be posted today at 5pm, so you and your child can look it over for the upcoming week. Please make sure your student checks their email and Google Classroom. I will be posting new activities every week for the remainder of school closures. I am also going to include general information about these activities below, please read this information first and if you have additional questions you may contact me by email at abaumann@goaj.org. You should also be receiving more information from the district and possibly our school site as well so please check your emails for those. 

    This is going to be a new experience for all of us, including myself, and I appreciate your patience and understanding as we learn together.
