3. Celebration of the Arts is on May 11th

Please attend Wayside’s Celebration of the Arts; “Life is Sweet” on Thursday, May 11th from 6:30-8:30 pm!  View your artists’ work that will be professionally framed under glass and take selfies at our student designed selfie station!  Be sure to listen to the fourth grade chorus perform outside in the courtyard, enjoy dinner from Potomac Pizza or Silver & Sons BBQ food truck and visit the Kona Ice food truck for a sweet dessert!  It’s a night to remember with a community you can never forget!

All proceeds from this fundraiser will go towards supporting our school’s art program, providing essential resources and enabling us to organize more creative opportunities for our students.

Volunteers are still needed

Wayside’s Celebration of Arts Night is Thursday, May 11th from 6:30 to 8:30 pm.  In order for this to be a huge success, we are looking for both adults to volunteer!  Please sign up here.  If you have any questions, please contact Jackie Stief at activities@waysidepta.org.
