• Welcome Back Tigers!

    Dear Parents,

    I am happy to welcome you and your child to the 2020-2021 school year!
    I’m Mr. Smith, your child’s Art Teacher. I am looking forward to a fantastic year! Whether it is face-to-face or MSPC Online, we want to ensure your child can achieve their highest potential while staying safe. I recognize that in order to be successful in school, students need support from both the home and school. I know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. I want you to know that I will do my very best to carry out my responsibilities. I ask that you guide and support your child’s learning of ART by ensuring that he/she:


    Participates in Art Class whether it’s here at school
    or online at home


    Completes all assignments to the
    best of his/her ability


    Knows that you and I expect him/her to succeed
    AND have fun in Art Class


    Below you will find our school expectations as well as Art Class rules so that you and your child can review them together. If you have any questions about the rules and expectations, please feel free to contact me to discuss them. Check back here at my web page for updates and important information.

    I feel privileged to be a part of the Fessenden Family. Thank you for your support!
