To teach a lesson in textile/pattern design, Middle School art teacher Ms. Stacey Schuman only had to peer down the hallway to gather inspiration to share with seventh grade students. She noticed that math teacher Mr. Matt Garofola often wore shirts with grid designs on them, which is similar to graph paper, so she directed the students to design a textile pattern using math symbols in the school’s electronic illustration course.

“Being he is a math teacher I thought it would make a fun idea for an assignment in textile/pattern design,” Ms. Schuman said. Ms. Schuman then created a template for the students to work on, copying a shirt and tie, then drawing lines on it to create the grid. The patterns were then applied to a garment design, essentially creating new wardrobe possibilities for a favorite math teacher!

Edna Louise Spear Elementary School students joined thousands of schools nationwide to celebrate Read Across America Day and the birthday of renowned author Dr. Seuss on March 2. This year’s festivities were a bit different from years past but didn’t stop school librarian Ms. Selinda Stout from encouraging students to continue their love of reading.

Students in kindergarten through grade 2 received goodie bags with gift cards from Applebee’s and Panera Bread and a special visit from a favorite character, The Cat in the Hat, aka Principal Amy Laverty!
