Don’t let our small size fool you—we have BIG things going on! This is our rooftop—the place where we shout all the great news. Check here for the news and announcements that affect our school family.

Donation Items Needed

Mr. Fitz has been collecting materials for "The Path", a mosaic wall project that will go up in the outdoor hallway between the office and the library. Over the next year, with help of students and community members, we will be converting the hallway to a pathway of positive energy and light. The theme is celebrating the Growth Mindset as we follow our paths of learning. 

The mosaic will consist mainly of reused, repurposed materials. If you have any of these to donate, please let Mr. Fitz know

  • 1/4" thick mirror (broken mirrors are fine - they will be cut up into pieces anyway)
  • Unused tiles (especially those with color or patterns - we have a lot of white already)
  • Chipped ceramic or China plates, cups, etc. (especially colored or patterned)
  • Parent/student volunteers to help with the assembling of the mosaic (cutting mirror, gluing pieces to the wall, etc.)
Art for the Sky April 17–19

Daniel Dancer will be in Angwin to design art on our athletic field, and our students and staff will become an equal part in a giant living image of a wolf. With the support of the Angwin Volunteer Fire Department, this will be filmed from above. This will be a STEAM-focused, whole-school, 3-day artist-in-residency program. We will be in need of a place for the artist to stay, as well as approximately eight parent volunteers.
