Support Our Art Program

Our Art Teachers have an Amazon Wishlist for books that will be used to support art instruction during art classes. Though they are not checked out of the art rooms for students to take home, Ms. Luyendyk and Ms. Drury both have reading areas in their rooms available to early finishers. They also utilize the books as an option on Freedraw Days, which are a reward for great classes and students at the end of the quarter. 

Please visit this link and select an item for the art rooms: http://a.co/h0bPn3I

Our wonderful Art Teachers need help preparing for our annual Fine Arts Night! They need help filling out forms for each student and preparing the artwork for display. It is just an hour and ANY help is appreciated!! Thank you!


If you can help fill out forms, but cannot come to the school, you may take some home. Reach out to Ms. Drury:  marci.drury@gmsdk12.org

Any help is appreciated!
