Personal Note from your art teacher, Mrs. Borjon: My lesson plans and other art projects will be posted on my personal teachers website for Harvard Park Elementary and Lee School. Plus all students will be able to contact me, send me pictures of their art work, and tell me about their art project through my email: firstname.lastname@example.org :) . Please email me weekly with your work, so I may mark you down in my record book for participating in a project of your choice. Please scroll down the home page (press on "load more" archives on my website to read: Illinois Arts Learning Standards & How Your Student Will Receive Art Participation Assessment Thru Remote Learning." My school work hours, are same as the districts; I am available from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. through my teacher email). Looking forward to your emails and hearing all about the great things you are doing in art! ~ Mrs. Borjon
