Kids Create Art: Kids Create Art or KCA will be back at Open House this year! All Alamo student masterpieces will be displayed in the MPR between 5:30-7:30 PM on Thursday, May 19th. Please note that Open House in the classrooms is from 6:00-7:00 PM, so plan your time accordingly. These keepsakes will be on sale for a suggested donation of $40/each to benefit the art program funded by the Ed Fund. For express check out, please consider pre-purchasing your student's artwork here and we will have it ready for you to pick up. If you are unable to attend, we will arrange pick up at another time.
A huge thank you to our wonderfully creative art teacher Sara Padash for collaborating with our students on their art masterpieces, as well as our parent volunteers for their assistance with this project.
