Yesterday we were lucky enough to have a few local guest artists visit our classroom, Sarah Frechette, along with mother Carol and partner Jason. Sarah is an artist, puppeteer and founder of PUPPETKABOB, a puppet company that has toured nationally to schools, libraries, theaters, museums and festivals.(check out her website at: http://www.puppetkabob.com/)
Sarah taught us how to assemble our colorful butterfly puppets with dowels, paint, symmetry and pom poms! We will be bringing our butterfly puppets to a whole school assembly where we celebrate being GEMS at Georgia School. The students will be able to bring them home after the assembly.
We are so fortunate to have Sarah and Jason each year. Content is ever changing, their level of excitement and enthusiasm is second to none. I know from the prideful smiles and laughter that our students LOVE having them here as we all do. Thanks to their awesomeness and for everyone’s continued flexibility and fabulous work with our students! — Principal Steve Emery
