The school and greater community are invited to attend.

“This project was a collaboration of many, including CSF, Advanced and Studio Art Classes, After School Enrichment Programs, the Ceramics and Woodshop departments, Coronado Unified Maintenance & Operations crew, and community members,” added Kirstin.  “I hope the community will join us to see the lifting of the tarp for the unveiling, enjoy light refreshments, and congratulate our amazing student team on a job well done.”Jazz Hands artists
