The grading period is quickly coming to a close and Winter Break is almost in sight!!  Please be sure to check Portal for missing work and so there aren’t any report card surprises!  Grades close NEXT FRIDAY, 12/22 and report cards will come home about 2 weeks after we return in January.



Wow!  It’s been a while since I have updated! Things got busy with Thanksgiving and last night was the K-2 Winter Show! SO cute!! We are wrapping up the 9 week grading period and getting ready for break.

The Wonder movie fundraiser has been extended!  Buy your tix any time in December through this link and $1 will be donated back to ADV.

Volunteers are needed for lunch duty next Wed, 12/13.  Contact Carrie Sammel at miss.cjsproductions@gmail.com if you can help.  Thank you!


Some of the classes have experienced some schedule disruptions due to my absence. Unfortunately, my husband has had some health issues and been in and out of the hospital causing me to miss some classes.  Mrs. Morgan and the rest of the ADV staff have been fantastic!  Students are carrying on with their scheduled projects. I apologize for any inconvenience, and I am generally available via email if you have any questions.  Thank you for your understanding!


Welcome to the art room!  I hope you will find the new site easy to use and helpful, as well.  I’m just coming back after the 2017 FAEA conference in St. Pete and I am so excited to implement some new ideas.  One is my new Instagram account which you can click on just to the right.  I will still occasionally add photos to ADV Family, and of course the student work will be available on Artsonia.  Enjoy your visit!
