We hope that everyone had a fantastic time at our annual Holiday Show! Congratulations to everyone who won the raffle prizes! Mr. Suarez and the rest of the production team wish everyone a very Happy Holiday Season!
The art display at the Holiday show exhibited many Jackson Pollock style works from our middle school students as well as a large collaborative piece the seventh and eighth graders contributed to. In 2nd through 4th grade we learned about how the element of art, value, can help create the illusion of form, another element of art, on a 2-D surface. We discussed the the purpose of a sleigh bell and created holiday-card-worthy art with glitter and bows as the final touches. Al
Thanks to your generosity, we have raised over $1200 dollars and collected many toys and food items for Bright Futures Academy families in need. Be sure to come to the Holiday Show on Dec. 20, at 6:30 PM in the Auditorium of Palm Beach Gardens High School, where we will showcase this year's Giving Chain!
Thanks to all of the folks that came out to the Village of North Palm Beach for their annual tree lighting! Our BFA Singers performed under the direction of Mr. Suarez, and it was a wonderful time. The weather was beautiful and it was so great to see all of the parents and students (both past and present) who came to this fun event.
Friday, the sixth graders visited the Eissey Theatre to watch "The Bell", a ballet adapted from the popular children's book, "The Polar Express." The kids were excited to watch this adaption. When the ballet began the crowd was electric with anticipation. There were many acrobatic and synchronized dances that portrayed the events of the book. The beautiful costumes and entertaining dancers captivated the audience. The students enjoyed learning about some of the dancers during
Here are some examples of student artwork for the Doodle For Google annual competition. This year Google asked students to illustrate what they think the future will look like and incorporate their ideas into the Google letters. All middle school students were encouraged to submit artwork. The winning applicant will see their art on the homepage of the Google search engine!
One day, Raul Gutierrez asked his son what he had done in school that day. The boy showed his father a map that he had created in class, but it wasn’t just any map; this was a map of the boy’s heart. His very insightful and compassionate teacher had asked her students to draw a heart and divide it into the things that they loved. Now, there’s a very good chance that this is where this story would end, but Raul Gutierrez isn’t just any father; he’s the founder and CEO of TinyB
Students got to holiday shop for their families at the Bright Futures Academy Penguin Patch this week. Thank you to the parent volunteers who made this multi-day event such a success! Maybe you'll find some of these treasures wrapped up!
Last week, the third grade took a field trip to the Bedners Farm! The students had a great time, and learned a lot. Some of the highlights from the action packed day were a ride on a tractor, picking strawberries right off of the vine. We taste tested sweet corn (and it was delicious!) and watched wildlife from the dock. After having lunch, the students played corn hole, and tried their hand at farm tasks like roping a cow, pumping water from a well and rock mining. We learne
Here are some excellent examples of the circus-themed project fourth grade students worked on. We studied paint technique, silhouettes, proportion and composition and they turned out great! One circus-themed work from each grade was chosen to represent BFA at Artigras this coming February. Congratulations to Ava in Ms. Bayer's fourth grade class for her work being selected!
