BEAVERTON — ‘Twas the week before Christmas and displayed throughout St. Cecilia School were stories and artwork portraying our dear Savior’s birth.  Kindergartners pasted their silhouettes of Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus onto their watercolor painted backgrounds of blue, green and purple.    

Seventh graders created an “Album of Jesus” that was posted on the spirituality bulletin board in the main hallway of the school.  Portrayed were infancy narratives, the annunciation, Joseph’s dream, the visitation, the visit of the magi and the presentation in the temple.  

Under the direction of the school’s art literacy parent volunteers, students learned about the life and art of Pablo Picasso. Picasso-inspired paintings of baby Jesus adorn the walls of the school.
