Beautiful program and thank you to all who put this together. Can't wait to see it. I would like to see it expand to other middle schools aswell.

Congratulations to Carolyn Digovich, Deanna Messenger and all of the other hard-working art teachers who provided this very significant learning experience for the students. The arts are such a critical part of a well-rounded education, and it's heartening to know that the school district and community recognize and support this.
