Fourth grader's in Erika Cook's art room at Jefferson Elementary School used water colors to paint images in the style of Austrian artist/architect Friedensreich Hundertwasser. "Students learned how Hundertwasser utilized irregular lines, bold colors, and incorporated nature into his unique structures and paintings," explains Cook. "I then let the kids loose to create their own designs including the one seen here by Hassan Gahnug."

The new Book Club at Jefferson Elementary School is popular. There are two groups of 10 to 15 students who meet Thursdays during lunch time to discuss books and authors. The students are enthusiastic about this weekly opportunity.

"The kids enjoy this informal time of eating lunch and talking about books," says Jefferson librarian Rhonda Howard. "I've heard from parents that their kids love Book Club."

Myths and fairy tales have been a natural fit for the Book Club as there are books at all reading levels. Howard is currently gathering copies of Charlotte's Web for the club members to read during spring break.
