Art – Drawings by Me

It’s official – our school is full of little artists! The students will be bringing home their work of art to show off. With it you’ll find a Drawings By Me order form so that you can choose to see your little artist’s masterpiece brought to life.

 

Be alert (we know little backpacks can become jungles) and remember to return the form envelope to school by November 8.
