PTO Draft – Week of March 11th

Art Walk Volunteers

The week following the Art Show, the art teachers utilize our school as an art gallery during art classes!  To facilitate this process, it is helpful for the teachers to have another adult volunteer.  This is a fun way to watch the students interact with art.  We hope you can help! Please head down to art classroom when you arrive.
