Each year the 8th grade class constructs hats as one of their monthly homework projects. There are only a few simple rules. The hat must have a theme, measure at least 12 inches in height, width, or depth, and stay on their head without holding it on with their hands. The students then parade through the school, sharing their creations with all the classes. One student asked Mrs. Schutt, our art teacher, “How long have you been doing this project.” Mrs. Schutt could not answer the question any other way than to say, "for a lot of years.” She says this is one of their favorite homework projects and several of the students told her that they have been waiting since they were very young to do it. You see it when you are in Pre-K and you can’t wait to wear a hat you’ve created when you’re in the 8th grade. Traditions mean a lot. For more photos click here.
