Lower School Dot Day!

Lower School Dot Day projects

Earlier in the Fall, Lower School Art students created "Dot Day" art projects to display in the library. Celebrated by both children and adults, International Dot Day is a day to connect, collaborate, and create. It is also a great day to foster self-expression and the Kinkaid Lower School actively and enthusiastically participates in "Dot Day" every year!
