    The William Street art fund raiser order forms were sent home last week.  All Young Masters orders are due back Friday, April 8.  Late orders will not be accepted after Friday, but you can order on-line if you miss the deadline.  However,if you order on-line, there is no guarantee that the items will be delivered right away and there will be a delivery charge to send the items through the mail directly to your home. All proceeds go to fund art department activities including gallery tours, visiting artists, art show prizes, and special projects.

If children live with criticism

they learn to condemn.

If children live with hostility,

 they learn to fight.

If children live with ridicule,

they learn to be shy.

If children live with shame,

they learn to feel guilty.

If children live with encouragement,

they learn confidence.

If children live with praise,

they learn to appreciate.

If children live with fairness,

they learn justice.

If children live with security,

they learn to have faith.

If children live with approval,

they learn to like themselves.

If children live with acceptance

they learn to find love in the world.
