SAIL Art 6 Students
SAIL (Students Accelerated in Learning) Art 6 Students from around the district recently participated in an art making event at New Visions Art Gallery in the Marshfield Clinic. In this all-day class, students worked with Art Educators Mr. Nelson and Mr. Geiger, as well as Gallery Directors Betsy Tanenbaum and James Machtan, to explore still-life drawing/painting and sculpture inspired by the of work of Master Artist Wayne Thiebaud. Thiebaud (born November 15, 1920) is an American painter whose most famous works are of cakes and pastries. A special thanks to our local cupcake specialists at 2 1/2 Cups Cupcakery and Bake Shop for their generosity! Each of the students was given the opportunity to not only work from original and colorful confectionery creations, but also witness the changes in form as they consumed them!

French Students Make a Clean Sweep at Regional
Twenty-five Marshfield Middle and High School French students competed at Concours Oral, a regional speaking competition, sponsored by the Wisconsin Chapter of the American Association of Teachers of French. The competition was held in Wausau on March 7, 2015. Participants were from schools around Central Wisconsin.
At the Concours Oral, students competed in the categories of Poetry, Prose reading, Conversation, Readers Theater and Théâtre de Chambre. To participate in Poetry, students were required to memorize and recite a poetry selection. If competing in the Prose Reading category, students were required to read a random selection or excerpt and given only 10 minutes to prepare. In Conversation, participants were also given 10 minutes to prepare, but were required to converse with a partner for up to five minutes on given topics. To participate in Reader’s Theater, a group of students read several scenes of a French play using voice intonation and background sounds to perform the play as if on a radio program. For Théâtre de Chambre, a group of students memorized and acted out a portion of a French play using props and wearing costumes.
Due to an outstanding show of talent and hard work, all of the Marshfield French students will advance to the state level competition in May where they will compete against students from over thirty Wisconsin schools.
