Congratulations to Margaux D. 4th grade, for being one of the city winners in the City of Seattle 2010 Neighborhood Art Contest! Margaux will be recognized at a special reception by Mayor McGinn’s office this Saturday for her entry that depicted what it means to live in a neighborhood. This is an especially meaningful project, coming at a time when all of our schools are learning what it means to become neighborhood schools. Congratulations Margaux!
