Laguna Beach Festival of the Arts Winners
Last school year, the following pieces of art were chosen for the 2011 Laguna Beach Festival of the Arts exhibit: Imaginary Animal by Elliot Storey, JK; Stretching Cat by Dahlia Sarmiento, JK; Owl by Aimee Cho, JK; Self-Portrait by Daniel Shim, JK; Abstract Girl by Vivian Gray, JK, Young Girl by Josiah Gray, JK; The Girl by Robert Ni, 1st Grade; and Still-LIfe by Maia Coffey, 6th Grade.

Of all those students chosen, Josiah Gray and Aimee Cho, both Junior Kindergarteners, received special award medals for their works of art. Congratulations to these promising young artists!
The Edgewood flat "Traveling Talon" Mascot was sent home with you in May so Talon could hang out with you during your summer vacation. Please email those Talon Adventure Pictures by attachment to Mrs. Powell at firstname.lastname@example.org. By the end of the month, we will have a Travling Talon Assembly and check out where Talon went.
