MW Charity Art Show


Coming Soon!

February 16, 6:00pm - The Merton Williams 5 Buy Five Charity Art Show!

Throughout January, our 8th grade Artists are studying the concepts of perspective and depth, continuing to explore composition, all while learning about the art making process of printmaking. The end result, small, vibrant printed pieces full of color and texture, that will be collected as a whole in the 5 Buy Five Charity Art Show! EACH 8th grade student (and some 7th grade!) will have a work on display the night of February 16 in the foyer at school. Each of these pieces will be on sale, at a cost of $5.00 per 5”x5” print. ALL proceeds from the show will be donated to Limbs International, an organization committed to providing low-cost prosthetics to those in need around the world, and a cause that Merton Williams has proudly supported for some time.

We hope you will join us, Thursday February 16 from 6:00pm-7:30, for a night of art, live music, refreshments, and a celebration of our creative students!

If you have questions please email Mr. Bill Smith, Art Teacher at Merton Williams, at  bsmith@hilton.k12.ny.us.

Spanish Class at MW


Students learn by teaching their peers.

Ms. Jordan and Ms. Hoffer joined their classes to learn the past tense in Spanish.  Students in Ms. Jordan’s class used their knowledge of conjugating verbs in the past to introduce and explain how to form these endings to Ms. Hoffer’s students. 

 

Students were very focused as they listened to their peers help them with this new material. They filled out reference sheets, worked on examples and learned a song to help them memorize the past tense endings to the tune of the Mexican Hat Dance (Jarabe Tapatio). 

 

After both classes are ready, they will join again to compete in various games to test their knowledge.
