The Color Of Flight
From the Daily Item: “Art teacher Wes Wagner and math teacher Charles Keer and their students unveiled ‘The Color of Flight’ in the hallway between the art and math departments. The wall mural, which depicts an eagle flying out of a hallway, uses leading lines and contrasting shapes to create the illusion of space and dimension.
Anamorphic employs a unique form of perspective in which the art can only be viewed properly from one single vantage point. Away from this point, distortion and warped forms create a uniquely abstracted image. As a person walks down the hall away from that vantage tile, the proportions of the mural becomes oblique and exaggerated. The art changes because it is based on a grid system that has tapering geometric proportions.”

Parent/Student Digital Citizenship Videos
Digital citizenship is the appropriate and responsible use of technology. Too often we are seeing students, as well as adults, misusing and abusing technology but not sure what to do. The issue is more than what users don’t know, it’s what is considered appropriate. The videos provided below will help parents educate themselves as well as their children in the appropriate use of technology and social media.

The Line Mountain School District has partnered with CommunityAid of Selinsgrove, PA to become a clothing collection bin partner. The district currently has two bins for collections; one is located near the main entrance to the Elementary School in Trevorton, and one is located behind the High School in the rear parking lot. The clothing collected will be sold in CommunityAid Thrift Stores in central Pennsylvania. Visit them at: www.communityaid.net The money and gift cards that the district receives through this partnership will go towards our Needy Family Fund. The staff at Line Mountain participates in a dress down day once per month with proceeds going to the same Needy Family Fund. The Fund is used to purchase Christmas gifts for needy students and their siblings along with food items during the holidays.
The Line Mt. SD would very much appreciate any help from the community by dropping off your new or gently used clothing at our collection bins. Please remember all proceeds help students and their families throughout our district in their time of need.
Thank You from the Line Mountain School District.
