Los Colores de Maxwell
Thank you to all of the families who came to the Carnegie Center on Saturday. It was a wonderful day getting to see our students art work and watching our talented students perform songs, dances, and poems. We have remarkable students who are fortunate to be developing not only proficiencies in the arts but also love and appreciation as well. A special thanks to Sra. Arteaga for all of her hard work in making this a wonderful community event.
