Middle School Art - Congratulations to Jaden Best and another student for being selected, by a vote of staff, to represent RMAE in the Youth Art Month Exhibit in the rotunda of the state capitol building. The YAM Exhibit will be on display from February 21 - March 7, culminating in a reception on March 7 from 4:00 - 5:00 PM. Thank you to all the students who made art for the contest. The exhibit was limited to two artworks per school so it was a difficult decision for staff. All of the art submitted was worthy.
