Annual Art Show Talent Expands Again

Students from the Littleton Elementary School District displayed some of their favorite pieces of art from this school year in the district’s 12th annual art show. The City of Avondale hosts the art show in the library off of West Civic Center Drive. Attendance at the reception was amazing as students rushed in with their families to see who’s pieces won best of school, best of grade, and purchase awards from the governing board.

Over 850 pieces of art, ranging from two-dimensional multimedia to three-dimensional sculptures in a variety of media, are on display through May 9. These include ceramics, oil pastels, water colors, ink, pencil, colored paper, collages, and more. A panel of judges selected the pieces for recognition, and each year twelve pieces are selected to be purchased and displayed in the district office. Congratulations to the recipients, and thank you to the members of the families that support their children in their efforts in the arts.

Collier Elementary Garden Project

Third graders in Ms. Older's class are getting a hands-on education when it comes to gardening. Our Collier teacher wanted to get her students involved in the process of creating a garden with materials from valley businesses along with guidance and help from Duncan Family Farms. Students learned what kind of soil to use, how to make a compost bucket, what types of plants to plant, and how often to water them. To read more about the project, visit Arizona Future.

Reduce your Arizona state tax by contributing to Littleton Elementary District schools! The state of Arizona allows taxpayers to take advantage of wonderful tax credits.

Simply download, print, and return a form to the district office or any one of our schools today. Our goal is to double the amount collected last year. We need your help to accomplish this!
