"On behalf of all students and teachers, the Visual Arts Committee (VAC) would like to thank Artist in Residence Sandi Henrich for working with ÉMJS again this year. Sandi continues to be a valued partner to bring art education to ÉMJS. This year, Sandi led ÉMJS in a school-wide project teaching every division the printmaking process. Each student made an individual fabric print representing the theme of "Nature in our Neighbourhood" to create a colourful banner. Please join the VAC in thanking Sandi!"

Thank you for offering the opportunity for the children. The teachers have already displayed most of the art work. It looks very impressive and so creative in the centre right now. Thank you, thank you, I am thrilled."

That was a treat for me and allowed smooth transitions and engaged kids!”
