I am Mrs. Joan Richard and I am very pleased to be a part of Glendale's wonderful "family". At present I am The Cultural Arts Teacher; if the weather is nice and the ground is dry, I bring the students outside for organized games, sports, exercise and play. Here the students learn rules of different games (kickball, dodge ball, parachute, etc.), how to take turns, play fairly and be good sports. They are also being physically active, which is important for children as well as adults.
If the weather is not so nice or the ground is too wet (or the mosquitoes too bad), then we are forced to be inside. I have a big room that is open for inside games (Pictionary, 4 Corners, board games, aerobics, etc.).
I hope your child(ren) enjoy coming to Cultural Arts and are able to wind down, relax and have fun for half an hour away from the traditional classroom setting. Please let me know if you have any questions; call school (457 - 4121) and I will return your call at my break time or after school.
Here's to a great year!
