With this purchase you will receive one 8x10 print of your CMI student and one 12x16 white IKEA Ribba frame. (To also purchase the digital rights of the photo, see Item Number 807 in the auction catalog).
How to get your photos: If you couldn't attend the May 13th celebration or haven't had a chance to purchase your photo(s), it's not too late! You can purchase photos on this site through Friday at 2:00 when the auction will close. Then email Kate Demong (my email address is in the many CMIPCSFamilies emails I have sent) and let me know your kid's name and grade, and I will deliver your photo and frame to your kid's cubby. If you would first like to see the photos, we will have them on a table in the main hall Wednesday, May 17th from 3:30-6:00 and Thursday, May 18th from 5:00-6:30 (before Family Night). Please also pick up your auction winnings during these times.
Story of the project: A group of six CMI parents set out to celebrate our students and our new, beautiful play space by photographing every CMI student exploring our outdoor sanctuary in the middle of DC. Our parent photographers—Darren Cambridge, Julie Kubal, Kari Beard, Kate Demong, Kimyia Varzi & Norm Greene—worked over many days to realize this ambitious project. Our goal was to capture every student, and we succeeded: only a handful of students are not included (due to absences or because they or their parents chose not to be involved).
Project sponsors: Thanks to IKEA for donating frames and White House Custom Colour for donating prints, all proceeds from photo sales will benefit our school and the final phase of playground construction this summer! The final phase will include many elements that celebrate and reinforce the school’s inclusive, arts-integrated, and inquiry-inspiring mission: a sensory garden, meditation circle, insect hotel, art studio, performance stage & music stations.
