From the Desk of Mr. Tiemann

Mark your calendars for the District Art Show and Empty Bowls Ice Cream Social, Thursday, May 7, from 6:00 to 8:00pm, at AGS Middle School!

…..ALL 5th GRADERS will have an individual artwork in the show.

…..ALL CLASSROOMS, grades 1st through 4th, will have a select number of students with individual artwork in the show (these students will be notified).

…..ALL STUDENTS, Kindergarten through 4th grade, will have their artistic contributions represented, as each has had part in creating a collaborative mural at their grade level.

This is a great opportunity to appreciate not only your own child’s artwork, but that of students across the district art program -- kindergarten through twelfth grade.

THANK YOU to Mr. Smith, and all of the district Art Teachers, for their hard work preparing our students (and their art work) for this awesome event!!!
