Baraboo School News
The Memory Project is a unique initiative in which art students create portraits (drawings, paintings, digital art, etc) for children and teens around the world who have been orphaned, neglected, or disadvantaged.
To do this, the artists receive photos of kids waiting for portraits and then work from those photos to create the portraits. Then they deliver the portraits to the kids as gifts. They also take photos of the kids receiving the portraits so the artists can see those special moments.
The goal of the project is to inspire caring, global friendship, and a positive sense of self.
These portraits were created by students of Mrs. Greenhalgh in Advanced Art Projects and will be delivered to the orphans in Rwanda by The Memory Project.

ATTENTION PARENTS OF ALL THREE YEAR OLDS
The Early Childhood Screening will once again be conducted through the use of a questionnaire which addresses the primary developmental areas for three year old children. Parents of children who were born between the dates of September 1, 2010 and November 1, 2011, will be sent the questionnaire on March 3rd 2014. The questionnaire will need to be returned by March 24th 2014, for review by school professionals. Additional in-person screening may be requested to follow up on any potential concerns identified by the parent(s) or school professionals. Parents may also request a follow-up appointment with school personnel. If you have not received the developmental questionnaire in the mail by March 7th and have a child born between these dates, please contact Cathy Schoenoff at 355-3918.
