Vianne Lara, Art Teacher|

Dear Hollywood Schoolhouse |

It has been 18 years since I first met you and you are now 75! Wow! Happy birthday! It’s been so much fun teaching Art all these years because you have been amazing in supporting me.

You are like a family to me. I’ve seen you grow into this wonderful school that is always full of excitement, challenges and fulfillment. We have been partners in honing the creativity, giving inspiration and developing the love for Art of the student body. Our young artists are confident and truly express themselves in their art without hesitation. They appreciate the value of artistic expression and always strive to do their best.

You have also taught the students to embrace who they are. You helped them to be strong and confident and to be not afraid of any challenges because you have given them a solid foundation to stand up for their rights and the rights of others.

I look forward to spending more meaningful years with you. I would like to see the campus expand so more students can attend and benefit from all the wonderful things you offer. May you continue to thrive and even be more amazing in nurturing the development of these young minds with love, warmth and acceptance. I don’t think I will be around in the next 75 years but for now I have found a home and I will continue to support you while I’m here. All the best and cheers to the next 75 years!

Ms. Vianne
