P.I.C. Students Feature Artwork

Students in the Creative Arts, Communication and Design Academy at the Pathways Innovation Center (P.I.C.) displayed their most recent work throughout the P.I.C. building on October 12. The expressions of art were created after the students studied the play Red by John Logan. In combination, the students studied Olivia Gude’s postmodern principles of art. As a final project the students created a piece of artwork that illustrated their understanding of Red, and included one postmodern art principle.

NCSD has information on lice and our protocol regarding lice posted on the Nurses page of our website. Also, we’ve linked to a document below with more information about lice and what to do if your child gets lice.
