Wildwood Middle School
Congratulations to Mollie Hanscom, with her 1st place win, and to Marlin Feagans, with his 2nd place win, in the Jefferson County Social Studies Fair!
Mrs. Bridget Brown, a local artist from Summit Point, brought her knowledge and artistic expertise into Mrs. Miller's art room via a Teaching Arts Creatively Grant that Mrs. Miller procured. Mrs. Brown uses natural occurring fibers from her own flock of sheep! She showed our students how these fibers can meet everyday items to created mixed media weavings. Each grade level is creating a weaving on a cardboard loom and will also get to create one non-traditional form of weaving. Mrs. Brown showed students how to dress the loom and begin the weaving process. She also shared many of her own hand-spun and dyed fibers with us.
