Wow! Got so busy, so fast! The Art Show and Silent Auction is coming in hot-next Thursday at the Dunedin Fine Art Center from 5:30-7:30pm. Every art student will have work in display! Bring the family-there will be food trucks, rock decorating, collaborative work for silent auction, framed work on display, galleries open and the Wheels in Wheels pottery bus! #ADVartshow2018



Oh my!! Where has the time gone!!  It’s been so long since I posted!

Exciting news today-all FIVE entries into the local art show were selected.  I am so proud of my middle school students!

Happy New Year! We have hit the ground running after winter break!  Middle schoolers have begun principles of design. Both third and fourth have been doing a painting unit. Fifth grade is weaving and elementary electives are covering a brand new art period!

Clay field trips for third grade begin this week.  Early preparations have begun for the April 19th art show at the DFAC.


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!
