Dear Key Communicators,


Congratulations on wrapping-up a wonderful school year.  Enjoy your summer!  We are looking forward to working with you next year.  Please sign-up for an AFES Orientation if you have not already!  Keep a lookout for the Arts for Every Student/Professional Development Surveys to come out later this month.  We appreciate you taking the time to provide feedback which is so needed to help us improve and fine-tune our programs and operations so that we may better serve you and your students.
