Thank goodness for the absolutely wonderful schools we have in Danville. I continue to be inspired by what the kids are exposed to in this school community. All the curriculum is well thought out and executed. I'm very pleased at how well rounded an experience my child is enjoying. Thanks a million to the educators!

I must say that this project was organized and run completely by volunteers. Brigette & Jacqueline you are great!!! Without them (and all of the other Moms & Dads who volunteer as art docents), Sycamore wouldn't have any art. THANK YOU!!!

Yes, I was a volunteer art docent at Sycamore years ago and thought the program, an art history lesson followed by an art project was really professional because the curiculum was provided for the volunteers, but still ,one friday afternoon a month, that's 8 times a year.......
