~~PPE Family Movie Night is Wednesday, May 27th ! Come celebrate the last day of school!  Our movie is Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory! We will have the Kona Ice truck and popcorn to celebrate.  Bring chairs or a blanket  and even a picnic for an outdoor movie night.  Movie starts at 8pm  See you there!

Great News!  

Quinn1993, an artist from Percy Priest Elementary School, has been selected as a finalist for this week's grade PreK-3rd "Artist of the Week" award.    Quinn1993 needs your help! We hope you'll come vote-- even if you don't personally know the artist.   The student who receives the most online votes between now and Saturday May 23 will be selected as the featured Artist of the Week. To cast your vote, simply click on the following link:

The winning "Artist of the Week" will be featured on the Artsonia homepage during the upcoming week (starting on Sunday) and will receive a commemorative plaque from Artsonia. In addition, Blick Art Materials has generously donated $100 gift certificates to the winning teachers and $50 to the winning artists.


Voting is limited to one vote per computer per day for each age group.
Thank you for helping us celebrate the creativity of students around the world!

Sincerely,
Your friends at Artsonia

P.S. Just think -- if your child were one of next week's finalists... you'd want everyone who receives an email like this to take a minute of their time to vote -- so, hopefully, you'll do just that for Quinn1993!
