It will be a busy few weeks for District 219 art students and teachers with three major events to check out.
North and West Create Works for Sculpture Park
Join students and teachers from Niles North and West as they are honored for creating two new sculptures for the Northshore Sculpture Park on McCormick Blvd. Join them for the live christening at 5:45pm. Just RSVP by Sept. 18 firstname.lastname@example.org. The school is exploring the possibility of providing a bus due to limited parking at the Sculpture Park.
