Cultural Arts Week is Coming!
Save the Date for Cultural Arts Week - May 11 - 15.  Augusta Circle students will explore magnificent Argentina!  From rain forests in the north to glaciers in the south, students will experience the unique landscape of this beautiful country.  Along the way, students will see a live performance of the tango, learn roping tricks of a gaucho, meet a few animals native to the area, and sample the local cuisine.  Pack your bags as we journey to South America for a week filled with exciting cultural events!
