Artfest, our annual  day which is devoted to celebrating many different disciplines of the arts, is just around the corner on Friday, November 10.  We are seeking volunteers that might be able to help us out on this day. Also, if you have a special artistic gift or talent and would be willing to share that with us, we would love to have you. We will take you for the full day or for just a few hours. We need help facilitating games, activities or just managing transitions and traffic control.

Please contact me if you are interested in presenting, assisting or need more information. Thanks in advance. These special days run so much more smoothly with extra eyes and hands. We truly appreciate your support of our kids, faculty and staff and our arts programs.
