Art students respond to current events

Stirred by the recent events of school violence, and in addition to the student led movement for school safety and policy reform, we have been responding to our students’ concerns, questions, and ideas as they process through such incidents. Powerful and empowering conversations have been happening leading to 6th and 7th grade art students becoming interested in will exploring ideas around deconstructing the word ‘victim’. We spoke about taking away the first four letters (V I C T) to use the remaining letters, I and M as a springboard to complete the sentence, “I am…” The use of the word victim or victims is often considered disparaging and dis-empowering. When we remove the first letters of the word, we are able to look at the word and its meaning differently and make choices about who we are and what we might become. Students will be encouraged to use their art as a voice to express what they are and what they can be. When asked to complete the sentence, “I am …” student responses included strong, unique, awesome, brave, young, caring, confused, disappointed, surprised, fast, afraid, excited, free, proud, artful, creative, hopeless, angry, smart, hopeful, tired, loving, and finally, ME.

6th grade stem shipwreck

 

6th graders enjoyed their day of learning with the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) shipwreck day.

Poem-in-a-Pocket

Poem-in-a-Pocket

Seventh- and eighth-graders celebrated National Poem-In-Your-Pocket Day in Ms. Silver's English classes, capping a month of poetry exploration. Kids brought in their own favorite poems or picked a new one from the poetry "basket," read it aloud to each other and then shared what it meant to them personally. The day coincided with the national month-long poetry celebration in which everyday people get to share poetry and see how it easily fits into all of our lives. Some kids recited their poems all day long and took them home to share with their families. A few Twin Hills poets shared their own work in the daily bulletin and on the school's Facebook page. As national Poet Laureat Billy Collins said: "Poetry can and should be an important part of our daily lives. Poems can inspire and make us think about what it means to be a member of the human race. By just spending a few minutes reading a poem each day, new worlds can be revealed. ”

Sonoma County 5 minute film festival

15 films were showcased at the 5 Minute Film Festival on Monday, April 9 in Santa Rosa, 5 high school, 5 middle school, and 5 elementary school.  Twin Hills has 3 films in the middle school category created by 6th grade students.  Film teams walked the red carpet, viewed films on the big screen, and heard feedback from the judges.​

 

The theme of the festival was "community", and all 6th graders spent time this year thinking about and creating films related to this theme.  Films were judged by SCOE based on their connection to the theme, their storytelling skill, and their creativity. Please take a look at this video fom the event. Twin Hills @ 1:22 and more!
