Hi, I put all contests on a contest board and once in a while, refer to them. A few years, ago, I told my principal, that "I could spend the entire year doing contests." He only asked me to participate in one last year.( and then I can select the ones that I feel the kids would get something out of) My problem, is. I recieved two invitations(?) to submit student work with a deadline of two weeks. I love to get the kid's work up, but I'll only have
seen them 3 times by then. Also, Get the PTO to do some of the decorations for turkey festival etc. as an afterschool activity for students. That works for me..
Speaking of contests, Did anyone enter the Frank LLoyd Wright one last year?Betsy

> I'm here! We're Year-Round and started on July 12th for a week of Workdays and the students began on July 19th, so I'm looking forward to our Sept-Oct. Break (getting married Sep. 26th, then HONEYMOON!!!!!!!).
> Re: May I TEACH, please?
> I can't even teach my classes for having to do:
> 1) placemats by students for restaurants promoting Census 2000
> 2) poster contest promoting Census 2000
> 3) a booth for Family Fun Night displaying a miniature work of art from each student
> 4) student-made centerpieces for tables at the county's Turkey Festival
> 5) the Bulletin Board at the Central Office
> And these are just September projects. There will be more! I want to be cooperative and I try to turn the project into a lesson, but this is getting out of hand. I love to show student's work and promote Art Education whenever I can, but I also love to teach my curriculum and I'm getting behind. The memos are never worded in a way that would suggest "optional", but rather indicate that it is "expected". How do some of you handle this problem?
