COMING SOON - The Merriam Classroom Art Auction

Each class at Merriam School worked together to create a beautiful, framed piece of art for your bidding pleasure.  These collaborative masterpieces vary from grade to grade and class to class.  They are truly unique items that you would be proud to display in your home and your kids would love to see on the wall!  These wonderful projects will be on display at the auction and available for sale online starting on Sunday, April 3rd through April 10th.

Please visit the Art Auction website in late March for a preview. Don't miss your chance to own a totally unique, hand-crafted work of art. Your child and your home décor will thank you!
