Courtesy of FEEF, Fairhope students at J. Larry Newton, Fairhope Elementary, and Fairhope Intermediate were delighted to attend school assemblies with Emmy Award-winning artist and TV presenter Mark Kistler!  In just an hour, Mr. Kistler taught faculty and students how to draw in 3D, as well fascinating artistic vocabulary like foreshortening, placement, shadow, and contour!  The artist challenged the children to take the 30-Days 30-Drawings Challenge on his YouTube channel, not only to develop their 3D drawing skills, but also to build critical thinking and self-esteem.  As an added bonus, students and their parents were treated to a family art night with Mark Kistler hosted by Fairhope Elementary. Thank you Mr. Kistler, and thank you FEEF!

Do you know your phylum echinodermata from your dermal brachiae?  No?  Well, just ask the sixth graders at J. Larry Newton!  Students researched the classification of starfish as well as their digestive, reproductive, vascular, and nervous systems.  The children used their new found knowledge to identify the key features of starfish during a dissection activity in the FEEF-funded science lab, assisted by sixth grade teachers, Kelly Evans and Lori Havard.  Science Lab teachers, Amy Travis and Marissa Waters, were on hand set up the equipment, support the students, and help with the clean up!  They definitely earned a gold STAR!
