Have you ever wondered what goes into creating a year book? The pictures are taken, collected, sorted and placed on a template. Teachers watch for special moments that they want to remember after the school year. Then the Year Book Editor has to decide what this year should look like for years' to come. Students are invited to submit pictures of what they think the cover should look like; a jury of judges look at all of the pictures and decides what picture should be used.

Art City Elementary students have been busy all year learning about different artists and art techniques. Each student chose their favorite piece of art and it was displayed in the Gym during the family night of the Book Fair in March. Students who visited the "Art Gallery" created chalk pictures, played games, and had a chance to have their faces painted. Thank you parents and PTA for all of your help in putting on such a magnificent gallery.
