Secret Life of Pets at HES
Students at Hubbard Elementary participated in the annual contest to tie into the High School art students’ larger than life papier mache sculptures. This year the theme for the papier mache was The Secret Life of pets and was based off of the recently released film. Large scale characters were created by students in Mr. MacMillan’s and Mrs. Lockovich’s High School Visual Art classes. Each year the elementary students look forward to the unveiling of the projects.
Mrs. Marino, Hubbard Elementary Visual Art Teacher asked students in grades kindergarten through fourth grade to spend time over their Thanksgiving break to create a drawing, painting, or sculpture of what they think their pet that they have or wish they had does while they are at school. Students were able to work with family members or on their own to complete projects. The voluntary project was turned in before Christmas break. Over a hundred students participated in the project.
Mr. MacMillan and Mrs. Lockovich’s art students worked to judge the elementary works and pass out awards to the winners. The High school also sponsored an essay contest where students could write about what they think their pet that they have or wish they had does when they are at school. Overall, the collaborative project was yet another a great success for the Hubbard Art Department and the students of the Hubbard Schools.

ES Holiday Concert
Prior to winter break, hundreds of proud parents, grandparents, siblings, aunts, uncles, and friends gathered at the Hubbard Auditorium to hear the students of Hubbard Elementary perform their annual winter concerts. Under the direction of Miss Danielle Aurandt, students in grades K-4 performed a variety of holiday songs and dances with a total of 5 concerts. These concerts gave the students the opportunity to perform as a group in front of a large audience and even speak individually. The students did a wonderful job and demonstrated the strength of our elementary music program and the importance it has to the overall development of our young students. Music at the elementary level helps develop language, reasoning, focus, and coordination skills. Through music, students also learn how to work together as a team and create a final product with a feeling of genuine accomplishment.
Research has found that learning music facilitates learning other subjects and enhances skills that children inevitably use in other areas. Music is science, math, language, and physical education, but most importantly, music is ART. It is one of the most magical aspects of human life that shapes people and cultures from every part of the world. Music, however, does not need to make excuses for itself. As Emerson wrote, “Beauty is its own excuse for being.” Without music, our lives would be less whole, less human, less valuable, and less complete.
