Student Council Organizes Fundraiser for Ukraine

Students wanted to do something to acknowledge the anniversary of the start of the war in Ukraine. With this in mind, our Student Council organized a bake sale with all procedes being donated to a local Ukranian center. Thank you to everyone who contributed to this with food or by supporting the sale. You raised $500.00 to support local relief efforts. Thank you!

Grade 7 Art Students Take Inspiration from "30 Americans" Exhibit

Seventh grade artists recently created mixed-media compositions inspired by contemporary Black artists featured in the traveling exhibit “30 Americans.” This exhibit has been traveling the country for over a decade and strives to fill in historical gaps in American museum collections.

Students chose from a wide variety of materials, styles & techniques surrounding the central subject matter of a heart symbol.
