Another Celebration is in the books. What a night. So many smiling faces all over campus all night long.

The evening kicked off with a wonderful performance by our orchestra under the guidance of Ms. Smith and Mr. Roulliard. The gates then opened for families to check out the art gallery in the auditorium and the classroom displays all over our south campus. Families could participate in art activities led by our fabulous classroom teachers around the campus. People could also take a chance at our prize table to win some goodies donated to the school and art made by focus artists, students, and art staff. All proceeds from the event go to "Keeping the Arts Alive" at Zamorano. The support we get from our families and community at events like these help us maintain supplies and positions from one year to the next in these challenging economic times.

We were honored to have several district guests in attendance- Area Superintendent Dr. Shirley Wilson, School Board trustee Marne Foster, VAPA coordinator Karen Childress Evans, and Multi-Media Specialist Daryl Prendergast. They all got to see first hand what a special place Zamo is and the wonderful community we call home.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the event. Without you this wouldn't be happening:)
A special thanks goes out to Danielle Guimond and Kathi Arinduque for rocking the set up with me this past week. Thank you Kathi, Danielle, and Ms. Vance for making some amzing art with our kids all year long. Thank you teachers for leading some great activities and doing it will a sincere smile on your faces. Thanks to our administration team for giving us the time to organize and put on events like this. I'm looking at you Principal Carol King, Vice Principal Kathleen Gallagher, and Dean of Students Don Nitzel. And last but by no means least, Thelma and your wonderful team of PTF volunteers, you have done so much this year:)

It's all about celebrating and supporting the arts at Zamorano. We offer students a chance to grow and thrive in academics AND the arts.
