Hello, Panthers! Happy Thursday! What a beautiful day to get some fresh air outside! I encourage everyone to get some exercise, take some nice refreshing deep breaths and let the sunshine hit your face (while still maintaining a safe distance away from others)! Tomorrow, in an effort to reach as many folks, Ludlow and beyond, I will be hosting a LIVE Pajama Puppet Party from my music facebook page, Miss Hanna Rae Mathey! There will be puppets, storytime, jokes, songs, and dancing! Fun for all ages! Round up your instruments and puppets, (or make some using creative materials!) and let's PAJAMA PUPPET PARTY! Take care everyone and I hope to see you tuning in tomorrow!

Have a PAWESOME day!

You can share your creations HERE, or by clicking my SHARING MEANS CARING! link at the top left of this page. That's where you can see your art along with other Panther masterpieces!
Many of you may be wondering how to organize your days. Our classes are usually one to two times a week, 45 minutes per class. I encourage you to spread your Arts and Humanities activities across the week, and mix it up! I have provided TONS of digital arts learning options on my page, and will continue to share more. I want to encourage everyone to take brain breaks, drink more water, stretch, walk, sing, dance, draw, or whatever you can, whenever you can! If you have any Arts needs, please email me! 

Have a PAWESOME day!
