Posted: Monday, October 1, 2012

We started our first Teen Advisory Group meeting of the 2012–13 school year with the question "If you were a book, would you rather be a fairytale or a mystery?"

Posted: Tuesday, August 28, 2012

Like our fellow TAG members, we spent the last meeting of the summer taking photographs of things that inspired us in the Museum.
