Zamorano Elementary shining bright at year-end event

zamorano1 Zamorano Fine Arts Academy showcased it's commitment to art education on Wednesday June 25th with it's 27th annual Celebration of Art. So many smiling faces all over campus, all night long.
The evening kicked off with a wonderful performance by the school's orchestra under the guidance of Ms. Smith and Mr. Roulliard. The gates then opened for families to check out the art gallery in the auditorium and the classroom displays all over the south campus. Families participated in art activities led by Zamorano's fabulous classroom teachers around the campus.
People took a chance at our prize table to win goodies donated to the school and art made by focus artists, students, and art staff. All proceeds from the event go to "Keeping the Arts Alive" at Zamorano.
Such support from families and community at events like these help to maintain supplies and positions from one year to the next in these challenging economic times.
Several district guests were in attendance: School Board trustee Marne Foster, VAPA coordinator Karen Childress Evans, and San Diego Art Institute youth Programs Coordinator Sheena Dowling. Everyone got to see first hand what a special place Zamorano is and the wonderful community they call home.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the event!
It's all about celebrating and supporting the arts at Zamorano. Students are offered a chance to grow and thrive in academics AND the arts!zamorano3
