Under the direction of art teacher, Ms. Kelly Lee, 14 Advanced and Advanced Placement Art students toured the fabulous MoMA (Museum of Modern Art) and the Met (Metropolitan Museum of Art) in mid-town Manhattan in November.

The industrious group raised over $2000 on Donors Choose and through a bake sale to fund their trip.

“We’re grateful to all who contributed to this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the students,” Ms. Lee said.
