Movie Night!

Thank you to all of the volunteers who helped make our first movie night of the year a huge success! All of the students had a great time and we are looking forward to our next movie night in February!


Our Annual Fine Arts Festival is coming SOON! This is a huge community event that requires a lot of help from volunteers. The more people we have helping, the less time it takes!

This year we will have ONE sign up genius for every volunteer position that is needed. This sign up should be sent out very soon. Please be on the lookout for this email!

FIne Arts Festival Concert Information

It’s hard to believe it is almost Thanksgiving! We wanted to take a moment to send out some information about our next concert. Our next concert is our Lovejoy Fine Arts Festival on Saturday, December 5, 2015. The Lovejoy Fine Arts Festival showcases excellence in our K-12 performing and visual art programs. Each year our performing arts groups provide concerts, theatre programs and dance reviews while the visual art programs set up art galleries and working studios. It is a wonderful event that brings together our community to celebrate and give back to those in need. Please take a moment to read the information regarding when the orchestra will be performing at this required event.
