The dedication of the District's Art Gallery held on December 17th, was well-attended, with many guests reporting the new gallery provides a "welcoming space" that helps promote an "awareness and appreciation of the arts." Wednesday's Art Show and gallery dedication featured artwork and technology education projects created by the District's K-12 students. The gallery will be updated periodically by rotating in new student work at regular intervals throughout the school year. The gallery was created through the generous donations of Conrad Schuerch and Gail Zambor Schuerch.  They not only provided monetary donations but also helped with its design, transforming the lobby between the Auxiliary Gym and the original High School gym, into "an enclave for art." The Schuerch's dedicated the gallery "to the past, present, and future students of the arts whose creativity flows through these halls." We thank Dr. and Mrs. Schuerch for their generosity. The Art Gallery has enriched our schools and it will provide a fitting venue to showcase the fine work emanating from the District's vibrant art and technology education programs!
