Chinese Acrobats Dazzle Crowd - October 2014
Lee Cohen story and photosFour acrobats from China visited Huth Road Elementary School in October. These talented acrobats performed dazzling acrobatic stunts and feats of balance, flexibility, coordination and strength. They tumble and flip, twist and bend in mesmerizing ways, demonstrating how practice, concentration and hard work turn their bodies into moving works of art. In addition to showing off their acrobatic talents, they also taught the students a little bit about Chinese history and language. They travel for nine months out of the year, performing up to three shows a day. Their youngest performer was just 14 years old. The visit, arranged by the Huth Road PTA enrichment team, gave our students an unforgettable and breathtaking experience!

Thomas Lockett K-12 "Artist of the Month" - May 2014
The Grand Island Art Department would like to congratulate Thomas Lockett as our recipient of the K-12 "Artist of the Month". Thomas is a fifth grader at Huth Road Elementary. He is a member of the art club and has enjoyed art since he was very young. Thomas likes to use drawing pencils as his choice of art medium because he likes to work in black and white. He likes the way his drawings look when he displays different values using the hard and soft graphite pencils. He states that the person viewing the work can look at the art and visualize their own color if they choose. One of his favorite artists is the self-taught French artist, Henri Rousseau. He learned about Rousseau in a group research project the fifth grades were involved with this year in art class. After researching his artist in the library, Thomas gained a real appreciation of Rousseau's art work. Thomas then completed a detailed interpretation of a jungle scene by Rousseau using tempera paint on a canvas board. Thomas said that, "art is important because you can draw anything if you work hard enough". He has a lot of encouragement at home from his parents and grandma. It will be so nice to see him flourish in the arts in middle school. We wish him continued success.

Skateboard Science at Huth - January 2014
On Tuesday, January 14th, the Huth Road Elementary School Parent Teacher Association (PTA) Enrichment Committee sponsored "Skateboard Science". The whole school participated in this fun, high energy science program. The presenters, Shane and Evan, explained the science behind safety equipment. Students first learned about the center of mass and its importance in balancing, then Evan demonstrated how these ideas come together by performing skateboarding tricks for the students. The Skateboard Science team made physics concepts, like inertia, easy to see and understand. While standing on his skateboard, Evan could not move without pushing off on the floor or wall. Students especially liked the final trick where Evan used a ramp to jump over Shane and Principal Kerri Nowak.
