International Dot Day, a day where the world is encouraged to celebrate creativity, courage and collaboration was celebrated this year on Sunday, September 15. This incredible day encourages students to “make their mark” in the world. In Verona, WI students got a jump start and celebrated a bit early.
On Thursday, September 12, the Verona Area High School yearbook staff spent the morning with their partner class at Glacier Edge Elementary School! The 22 high schoolers, advised by Rita A. Mortenson, paired up with Amy Klubertanz’s second grade class to work on an art project connected to an app called Colar Mix 3D coloring book to bring drawings to life! The app uses scanning technology to read the drawing and transform it into 3D objects on screen.
These two classes have been collaborating for a year now, and this is one of several projects they have worked on together. Over the course of the year, they will work together on other various ventures, including the second graders taking a field trip to the high school. Both classes benefit greatly from these experiences, and always love the opportunity to work together!
