A drawing by Sarah Thomas, a student at Swan Valley Elementary has been published in the 2000 (10th) edition of the Montana student literary/art magazine, SIGNATURES FROM BIG SKY.
The publication is an annual product of three teacher organizations, AGATE (Montana Association of Gifted and Talented Education), MATELA (Montana Association of Teachers of English/Language Arts), MAEA (Montana Art Education Association) and the Montana Arts Council, Artists-in-Schools/Communities program.
A grant from the Liz Claiborne/Art Ortenberg Foundation also helps support the project.
The purposes of the magazine are to provide a showcase for young Montana artists and writers so they are able to share their work with their peers around the state, and to provide a model of student excellence for use in the classroom.
Complimentary copies have been sent to each public school library and 25 participation private school libraries in Montana this year, which numbers over 900 libraries.
Sarah Thomas is in the 7th grade at Swan Valley Elementary and is the daughter of Roger and Penny Thomas. Congratulations Sarah!!!
