Art Fair is Coming

Art Ninjas! Mark your calendar! Tuesday, April 26th is the Art Fair! Student work will be framed and displayed from 5:30-8:00. Frames can be purchased for $25 and your purchase of your child's art helps support our art program. If you would like to volunteer, we will need people to help set up the fair, run the check-out, and tear down when we're finished. If you are interested, please contact Miss Timmons. We hope to see you there!

Thanks! Have a great day!
