    What fond memories my children and I have of Ms. Miller’s art class. They loved the after school art club activities. Thank you, Sally, for all you have done to instill the love of art in our children. For your into, our youngest, Sarah, whose design was selected to the art club t-shirt one year will be 22 years old next week. You have been impacting students for many years now!

    Ms. Miller taught both my children and is an outstanding teacher. She fostered a love of art in both of them, especially through the afterschool art club that encouraged parents’ participation. Congratulations, Ms. Miller, and thank you for all you did for the students!
