Our 50's themed  Art Faire & Variety Show: Park Maitland's got Talent  was a fantastic event showcasing spectacular art using a wide variety of art mediums and representing a variety of cultures and classical artists! We could not be more proud of our creative artists and their inspiring and talented art teachers, Ms. Flavhan, Ms, Forbes, and Ms. Leider!

Ms. Pollack did an outstanding job of organizing our young talent for our afternoon talent show, Park Maitland's Got Talent! Thanks to all who attended and contributed to this event's success.
The 6th-grade personal poetry collection highlighted outstanding ingenuity and very impressive writing!
