Art Masters

The Art Masters Program introduces students to the elements of art by studying certain artists and then preparing a related hands-on art project in the classroom. Each lesson begins with an assembly presentation and discussion about the artist's life, including influences, techniques and strong elements of art exhibited in the artist’s work. The week following the assembly presentation, trained parent volunteers assist the students with an in-classroom art project that reflects each artist’s style, chosen medium and artistic techniques.

Note: The Art Masters Slide & Classroom Presentations Schedule is attached here.

Art Masters Committee is responsible for providing art education to our students.

Best Foot Forward (BFF) Reading Program

Best Foot Forward (BFF) is a voluntary reading program sponsored by the PTA and available to all 1st thru 5th grade students.  Each student can check out one book daily from our library, read their book at home, and return the next day to have a volunteer ask them five or six questions to test their comprehension of the book.  

This program is staffed entirely by volunteers.  We need volunteers who can work 1 to 1 ½ hrs. per week, conducting student interviews.  Our first day this year is October 11th.

We gratefully accept donations of gently used books or any leftover goodie bag items all year.

To volunteer, or receive additional information, please call Bridget Furiga at 818-515-3275 or email her at gimsllc@verizon.net.
