All State Road students will be represented in the show, either as one of the over 225 of our students with an individual artwork on display, or as a participant in a grade level mural. And do enjoy the beautiful display of ceramic bowls made by State Road 4th graders while also enjoying some ice cream at the 15th Annual Empty Bowls Event. Better yet, take home the bowl of your choice for only a small donation, proceeds to benefit St. Vincent De Paul Society Food Bank.

Please continue to make the extra effort to promote, practice, and model our Daily Affirmation of being Safe, Respectful, and Responsible.
