Tangent students had the opportunity to witness a “Senior Walk” in our building today. Several West Albany students put on their caps and gowns and visited us by doing the famous walk thru (that school districts around the country have been participating in in recent years). Many of these soon-to-be graduates actually attended Tangent Elementary, including one who will be a class valedictorian this year. West Albany graduation is set for Thursday, June 8th. Good luck to all our seniors in our district. May you always be learning and growing no matter your path, and in that you shall find success!
Today was the annual Otter Beach trip to Corvallis for our 1st thru 5th grade students.
Visiting local artist, Mrs. Volbeda, was invited to first grade to introduce art by Post-Impressionist painter Vincent Willem van Gogh. Van Gogh was a Dutch painter who is among the most famous and influential figures in the history of Western art. The students then were given the opportunity to create their own “Van Gogh”. Click on the images shown below of some of the students’ work.
Mrs. Volbeda will be returning next week on May 31st to introduce works by Paul Klee, a Swiss-German artist. His highly individual style was influenced by movements in art that included Expressionism, Cubism, and Surrealism.
