Art Room

The Art Room has been a busy place all school year and Mrs. Friedman will be preparing for the art gallery during our Roadrunner Road Show on May 20th. Don't forget to view all of Aspen's amazing artwork that will be displayed outside the MPR that evening.

Please take a look at the Amazon Wishlist to see if you can help out the Art Room by purchasing supplies that will supplement the classroom for next year or materials that will assist in a successful art show!

Also, if you would like to help prepare the art show the week of May 16th, you're welcome to email Mrs. Friedman at - your assistance is greatly appreciated! Roadrunners have created masterpieces all year long and can't wait to show them off!

Thanks in advance for your helpful donations and/or volunteer time!
