Have you ever wondered what goes into creating a year book? The pictures are taken, collected, sorted and placed on a template.

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.

Mrs. Morgan's Kindergarten class had the opportunity to draw and color a self portrait. Mrs. Morgan said, "I use it mostly to reinforce how even though we all have two eyes, a nose, a mouth, two ears, etc. no one looks just like us—we are all unique.
