Once again, WDSE-WRPT is sponsoring our successful Authors and Artists Contest and we are hoping that your second through fifth graders will be part of the excitement.
The topic for this year's poster contest is "Illustrate a day or event that you will always remember." In one or two sentences, describe that day or event on the front or back of the poster.
We encourage all classroom and art teachers to make this an assignment, giving their students a chance to win scholarship prizes to be awarded at each grade level: $150 for all First Place winners, $100 for all Second Place winners, $75 for all Third Place winners and $25 for all Honorable Mention winners.
There are no restrictions on media (ink, colored pencil, markers, paint, paper, craft supplies etc.) but the work must be dry and stackable when submitted. Each entry must be original and not exceed the borders of an 11 X 17 poster. Entries must be marked on the back with the student's name, school, teacher and grade.
The deadline for poster submissions is December 5, 2014. Because so many schools and students will be participating, we ask teachers, with the help of their students, to choose the best 5 posters from each classroom for submission.
Our past winners have come from regional public, parochial, charter, and home schools and we hope that some of your students will be displaying their creativity at our March Awards event. We would appreciate your passing this information on to classroom and art teachers at a staff meeting or in a staff email.
If you have questions about the contest, please contact Kathy Clark at 218-724-5147 or at
email@example.com. We will be in touch!

Monday, September 8 from 1-4 p.m.
Friday, September 12 from 1-4 p.m.
We are limiting the number of riders to 80 for each day.
Deadline to get payment in is September 1 (info on where to mail payment is listed below).
Enjoy three hours of unlimited rides on Spirit Mountain's Timber Twister alpine roller coaster, the zip line AND mini golf is included, too! Snack bar is available, selling hot dogs and pizza.
The Timber Twister is a secure roller coaster connected to the track. Each car has brakes to slow the car, but you can ride the whole way with no brakes and still feel safe while having a great ride. Riders ages 3-7 must ride with another person age 16 or older. Riders 8 and older AND 48 inches and taller may ride alone. The same rules apply for the zip line.
1. You can RSVP to Sheri Burns, but your place will NOT be held until payment is received.
2. Payment of $12 per rider should be mailed to (and check written out to) Sheri Burns, 1102 N. 18th St., Superior, WI 54880 by September 1. You MUST include your phone number, name of participants and your email. You will receive a confirmation email that you payment has been received.
3. Show up on the day and check in to get your rider bracelet. The person in charge will have a list of riders who have paid. There will be NO extra wrist bands available on this day at this price (you can purchase ticket packets - info is on the website below) so make sure that all riders have been paid in advance.
4. We need to secure at least 40 to get the great rate that Spirit Mountain is providing for us so tickets are non-refundable but you can transfer to another person. You must let Sheri know by calling at 218.391.5171 by 10 a.m. the day of the event if you'd like to transfer your tickets to another person.
We can only make one payment to Spirit Mountain. Therefore, we are not able to switch folks who signed up on Monday to the Friday date, and vice versa. No last minute adding of names to the list - no exceptions.
The ride is open rain or shine, so the event will be held either way.
More information about the ride is at www.spiritmt.com.

Artventure! (Ages 7-11)
Instructor: Liz Vandersteen
Our homeschool class is back to once a month but there is still just as much art as before! All of the projects will be new, with connections made to all aspects of the curriculum, literature, science, social studies and more. Visual art is the earliest form of expression and communication. Come explore art through the ages and from around the world. Investigate the historical context and purpose of art objects from different cultures and eras, and gain insight into what self-expression meant to them. Then become a part of art history yourself, as you create art projects inspired by what has been created in the past. Learn about the elements and principles of design – the building blocks of every artwork. Students will use a variety of materials, such as clay, plaster, charcoal, watercolor paint, and much more. Study guides and more research opportunities will be provided for parents to further the process throughout the month with their children. A snack will be provided.
Drop-in (4th Floor – Depot, 506 W Michigan Street)
At least 50% of tuition must be paid upon registration (cash, checks, MasterCard and Visa are accepted). The remaining balance is due by the first class on October 14th. 15 student limit.
