There Is An Artist in All of Us: We Belong
Save the date! Thursday, April 20 from 5-7 pm will be the Countryside Art, Book, and Multicultural Fair. From 4:30-5:00, students in our Foundations Program can have early access to the event! It’s a FUN, FREE, FAMILY event you won’t want to miss.
~Roam the grade-level galleries of student created art pieces!
~Buy some new books for summer reading!
~Watch multi-cultural dance & music performances on stage!
~Purchase some Kona Ice treats (25% goes back to our school)!

NEW THIS YEAR: Student artwork will not be framed or available for purchase. All student art work will be sent home at a later date. You’ll still want to come for all the fun activities. As we won’t be raising funds from the frames anymore, please consider making a donation directly to Countryside’s art department. Any donation is greatly appreciated. Donate here!
