Art is a nine week course which offers an atmosphere that is safe and positive for each individual student.  Many students come into an art classroom with the idea that artistic talent is something one is born with, not something that is learned.  In truth, everyone can learn to be artistic and how to utilize artistic techniques.  I tell all my students this is your practice class. This class encourages students to learn about and explore the world of art. Students will focus on developing skills which include drawing, painting, sculpture, ceramics, and collage. They will have the opportunity to experiment and refine skills using a variety of art media. Elements and principles of design will be emphasized in each project.

Middle School Marketing Program is an introduction to the marketing world. The standards may be taught in the order deemed appropriate by the teacher. However, Standard 1, the Employability Standard, should be taught and reinforced along with each standard. Students learn basic marketing and economic concepts and apply these concepts through project-based instruction. Students are shown the connection between marketing and entrepreneurship, thus cultivating entrepreneurial abilities needed by marketing employees and/or entrepreneurs. This course may also encourage the idea of self-employment as an income-generating option. Participation in local, state and/or international DECA will reinforce the students’ business and marketing skills as well as develop their skills in leadership, competitive presentations and community service. Students will demonstrate personal, social and technical skills through the development of portfolios.

DECA: The mission of DECA, an Association of Marketing Students, is to prepare emerging leaders and entrepreneurs in marketing, finance, hospitality and management in high schools and colleges around the globe.
