A Coeducational School | Pre-Kindergarten to Third Grade

First Grade Stained Glass Windows

First-grade artists used colored plastic and dimensional paint, in the place of glass and metal, to create their very own stained glass roundels. The circular portions of a rose window are called roundels. They developed their designs using pattern blocks that served as a template for cutting the colored plastic.
 
Each window is framed in black to mimic the stone tracery found on the Cathedral windows. Depending on the weather, our windows might look different because the light is different!
 
You might see some reflective shapes in our windows, along with the transparent “glass.” First graders have been using the idea of windows and mirrors as a launching point for conversation about diversity and inclusivity in our community.
