The Exploring Visual Arts After-School Program is run by Mrs. Elouadrhiri. Mrs. Elouadrhiri is a painter by hobby because she says that art is “therapeutic” and “relaxing.” She decided to be a part of the After-School program because she wanted to share her love for art. The group is currently creating watercolor paintings. The activity not only allows the student to learn more about art history and creativity, but it also help exercise their skills in gridding and mathematical proportion. Sixth grade student, Genesis, says that the program not only helped her learn more, it also gave her the opportunity to make friends easily. Genesis says that she would like to join again next year, and highly recommends that others join the program as well.
Like the Claw Chronicles, Prussing also had another student-run newspaper. The newspaper was discontinued shortly after the third session of the After-School Program began. The teacher in charge of the newspaper, Ms. Pugh, will leave Prussing next year. Another reason as to why the newspaper program ended so early was because there is no point in having two newspapers for the students and parents. Sixth grade student, Meriem, and fifth grade student, Olivia, both said that it was sad to see the newspaper end, but on the bright side it ended for a good reason, as Ms. Pugh will move on to bigger better things in her new job.
