It Pays to Read! Art City Elementary celebrated reading on Friday, January 22, 2010 with an assembly that pays the students for reading. We want to thank WW Clyde for their generous donation to make the “It Pays to Read” assembly possible. We had a special guest “Chief”, from the Ken Garff Road to Success Program, help the students as well. Each month students read and turn in a slip for every 100 minutes they read. If their name is drawn they are invited to choose four teachers to help shoot baskets.

Art City Traditions
Ace reporters sharing thoughts on Traditions:

A Christmas tradition at Art City Elementarty is to sing around the tree, it started in the lobby, as the school has grown and expanded it moved to the gym. All of the classes in the school gather around a lit tree and sing fun Christmas songs, ending with Silent Night the students sing the first verse, then hum as they leave the gym.
