Just wanted to share.... Last week we conducted our First Annual Art
Breakfast and it was delightful!

The suggestion came last year by a couple of our most motivated
elementary art teachers to hold an art breakfast whereby art teachers
could invite their principals. This, a chance to converse and enjoy
each others company away from school grounds.

We formed a K-12 committee last year, formed ideas and worked towards
the goal. We invited our superintendent, assistant superitendents as
well as the principals. We held the breakfast at a pasche private club,
that sits as the penthouse on the second highest building of our modest
city's skyline.

Not all the art teachers chose to participate... but most did. It was
highly successful.

Instead of having a serious speaker, we decided to ask one of our high
school art teachers, who could make a second living as a stand up comic
if she wanted to, to MC for us. She was hysterical and even had our
superintendent laughing!

We have been receiving thank you's from all who attended and building
more ideas for next year. Just thought I would pass this along, it is a
great advocacy measure, and one we plan to implement as a regular part
of our program.

Artfully yours,
