"Morph" Animal Drawings


Mrs. White's Art Foundations I class has created some amazing pictures. Students "morphed" two animals together to create some cool combinations and very colorful artwork. Thanks for decorating our hallways!



Hope Squad is a school-based peer support program that empowers selected students to take action to improve the school environment. Hope Squad members are trained to recognize if they or their peers are at risk for suicide as well as how to encourage peers to seek help from a trusted adult.
