Thanks to Roxhill Elementary‘s award-winning librarian Pat Bliquez for sharing this report and the accompanying photos:
Roxhill kindergartners left school this week with a smile on their faces and a colorful, handmade hat on their heads. It was “hat week” in our kindergarten classes where students read “hat stories” (The Magic Hat by Mem Fox and What a hat by Holly Keller) and created artwork with a hat theme. The hats were a gift from Kristine Dembiczak of Kent, Roberta Martin of West Seattle, Roxhill librarian Pat Bliquez, and teachers Anndrea Beaty and Mary Elizabeth Ezenwaka.
It took approximately an hour and a half to make each hand loomed hat. Each hat was unique: one sported a pom pom, another a crocheted bow; another was accented with sparkly thread. This is the third year that Roxhill kindergartners have participated in “Hat Day,” a tradition started by Ms. Kristine Dembiczak and now expanded to other volunteer hat loomers.
The Roxhill community especially wants to thank Kristine and Roberta for the generosity of their gifts of time and creativity.
Sorry, comment time is over.
