Ypsilanti Community Schools (YCS) students were given an extraordinary opportunity to have their artwork displayed in the United States Department of Education in Washington, D.C. in May 2020, however, plans were derailed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The YCS Art Department and Administration felt it was essential to have the artwork displayed, so the district, along with local partners, has worked tirelessly to have banners in the city of Ypsilanti reflect the works of art around the theme of diversity, equity, and justice. These three core tenets directly reflect the YCS mission statement and the district's talented art department, students, and teachers. The Ypsilanti Rotary Club was a prominent supporter of the Washington D.C. trip. The funds raised by the club will support the printing and installation of the banners. Expect to see these beautiful banners around Ypsilanti soon!
