Crafting Park Icons
Our friends from the Bullis School in Potomac, Maryland have been busy in 2013.
The third-grade students had the opportunity to combine their love of science and art in a unique diorama project that was displayed at The North Face Georgetown's store in Washington, D.C. and featured in The Gazette newspaper! The students' dioramas highlighted their favorite features of the national parks.

Thank you to The North Face Georgetown store for welcoming our Buddy Bison art work!
Buddy Bison Seamstress
I am a really good sewer and I guess Mrs. Cohen knew that too. I was just walking through the hall and then I saw Mrs. Cohen. She asked me if I could sew a Buddy Bison for her and she would take a picture of it and send it to the Buddy Bison website. I said yes.
When I got home I told my mom and dad about the project and they loved it.
My mom started to find a sewing pattern for a bison. She found the pattern, but it took a few weeks to arrive. When the sewing pattern finally came, me and mom found out what fabric we needed. So we went to the fabric store and got the fabric.
When we got home, we started to cut out the pieces. We noticed that some of the fabric was too stretchy, and stretchy fabric is really hard to sew. So my dad and I went back to the fabric store and got the right fabric.
Finally we got to sew and the sewing pattern was really hard, so my dad helped me a whole lot with the bison.
Then after we stitched our last stitch and sewed on our last button, we were finally done.
So the next day I brought in the bison and showed Mrs. Cohen and she was so happy and I was happy too.

Bullis Students perform Buddy Bison Play "Get out"
The third graders at The Bullis School in Potomac, MD acted out the Buddy Bison play "Get Out" by Rob Cohen. Mr. Cohen was in attendance for the play. It was the first time it had ever been performed by actors and actresses! Three different people played me, Buddy Bison. As a bison, I don't know too much about acting, but from what I saw I think everyone in the play deserves an award!
