Being an Art Docent is such a fun way to be in the classroom and get creative! Don't worry if you are not an art expert! Training materials and ideas are available. We would like to have more than one docent per teacher, so if you feel that you have a few hours a month to teach art in your child's class, please email Jenny Wang at jenniferwang.jcw@gmail.com or Sara Zeller at sarazeller@hotmail.com or sign up in your child's classroom on curriculum night. Thank you!
