Knights of St. Helen School

The third grade class has been learning all about Medieval knights and their beautifully decorated armor. We watched a wonderful movie titled, Francis, Knight of Assisi. We learned how Francis wanted to be a knight for Christ.

Students then created a design that represented their faith and put that design on their helmet with glue. After the glue dried, we painted the helmets and masks silver to look like shining armor. Our third graders are now Knights for Christ....protectors of St. Helen school

Springtime at St. Helen School

The sun is out and the flowers are starting to bloom in the art room. The first grade class created these vibrant paintings using oil pastels and liquid watercolor paint. Looking at these works of art just brings a smile to my face!! Happy Easter to all and enjoy your spring break.
