    Teacher Spotlight

    Teachers: Mary-Margaret Mulroney and Laura Buchanan

    Recently, art teacher Laura Buchanan and multi-media teacher Mary-Margaret Mulroney have combined their classes for a cross-curricular project. Mrs. Buchanan took her art class and combined with Mrs. Mulroney’s media class to do a research project on art from a time period of their choosing. Students then created a work of art that would coincide with their research. On top of this, Mrs. Mulroney has been working diligently to prepare and present this year's summer reading options are for the students. Both the teachers and students are excited about this year's options because of the variety and the messages the books send. To view the reading options, click here.
