Homework on weekends

Central Dauphin School District’s e-communications program helps to get timely communication from our schools out to the public. We feel e-Communications will provide a better way to reach out to our parents and students while reducing the amount of paper homework on weekends home. Some information may continue to come home in paper form. We recognize that some parents do not have the opportunity to reliably use our web site on a regular basis.

For those families, Central Dauphin will make paper copies of relevant flyers available to your child on a weekly basis. To get paper copies, you simply need to contact the school office. A packet of papers will be gathered each week for your child to pick up at the office.

Albrecht Dürer: The Genius with a Great Soul Albrecht Dürer was not only the greatest artist of the Northern Renaissance, but also a unique personality, his genius coexisting with a pure, noble character. Indeed, looking at his self portraits, we discover the handsome man he was, with his face reflecting the purity of his soul and his intelligence. His contemporaries were impressed by his physical appearance, and his mental and moral qualities, which were no less remarkable.

Albrecht the Christian was worth even more than the artist. Among all the artists investigating the classical in search of new principles of art, Albrecht Dürer stands supreme. He studied the art principles, made rigorous theoretical observations, meticulously recorded the results of his investigations, and then he gave the resulting written instructions to his contemporaries. In the 16th Century, the city was the chief centre of the German artistic life. The revival of the classical spirit of Antiquity inspired the new, original conceptions in art. The movement influenced the art more than the literature, with engravings, woodcuts, and paintings reflecting the new thinking. The study of Dürer’s works requires more imaginative effort than the works of the Italian Renaissance artists.
