May 27, 2016: Art Show of grades 5 through 12

Dear School Community,

The Art Department would like to cordially invite you and your children to the first ever art show of grades 5 through 12 on Friday, May 27, 2016 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm.  Student made artwork created in the school year 2015/16 will be displayed at this art show.

Your children have invested much time and effort creating these beautiful works of art.  We will celebrate their achievements by creating a traditional art show opening atmosphere including a small offering of snacks. 

We look forward to seeing you at the DSW on May 27th, 2016 to kick off Memorial Day Weekend with this art event. Thank you for your support!
