Day ten in my “Leaving Loveland” challenge.
We have been very happy with the elementary school our kids both attended here in Loveland. We moved here the summer before Luthien began fourth grade and Silas began first. Lu has since moved on to middle school, but Silas will have spent all his school years in Loveland right here at Garfield Elementary.
Garfield is the arts-focused elementary school here in Loveland, so the arts are integrated throughout the curriculum. One project some of the students worked on was making these murals to decorate the modular building the school uses for additional space; and Silas got to be in a group that designed and painted the mural on the left (under the supervision of a local artist).
Here’s a closeup of Silas and company’s mural. They wanted to include music and visual art and drama as well as the playground, mountains, and their school mascot, Grizzlies.
