PES is thankful to offer such vibrant art & enrichment opportunities, with teachers who challenge and inspire students to be bold, creative and try new things! Our 7th & 8th graders have been creating still life masterpieces by adding value and color to create the illusion of form, while various students in grades K-4 have started group piano lessons after school. #pesthankfulthursday
