“The students have been hard at work all year mastering new skills and perfecting their pieces. The
Arts Festival gives them an opportunity to showcase their work in a professional venue for all to see. I highly encourage parents and community members to attend the show; I know they will be amazed at the high caliber of work on display.”

Students will have the chance to attend the event during the school day. Parents and community members are encouraged to visit that evening.
