Experience The Arts Day & Week of Diversity Sculpture
LS Sculpture

Every LS student designed a mail tube box expressing their personality and cultural heritage. When the sculpture is dismantled, students in Ms. Lee's art class will get a letter inside their mail tube from their classmates about how special and unique they are as a diverse gift to our school population. Art students are very excited to open their boxes!gabby.jpggildea.jpgDSC03781.JPGDSC03770.JPG
