Announcements for 3-12-12
FROM THE DESK OF MS. JACKSON
"Education is not the piling on of learning, information, data, facts, skills, or abilities-that's training or instruction-but is rather making visible what is hidden as a seed--"
MME Make-up Days will be Day 1:March 20th, Day 2: March 21st, Day 3:March 22nd
Please congratulate seniors Dara Firoozi and 'Cat' Trager for their winning entries in this year's Ann Arbor Art Center "Potential 2012" Show. Both Art students prepared their works in my Art Portfolio course, first trimester.
The Potential juried high school Art show selects works from Ann Arbor schools, as well as Saline, Dexter, Chelsea and other immediate areas. Skyline submitted fourteen entries, and total works chosen are only 58 this year. Way to go, seniors.
Check it out!
