On October 29, 2007, the city of San Francisco hosted its 2nd annual Russian Arts Festival at City Hall. St. John’s students contributed a display of artwork produced during the year under the direction of Mrs. Armine Mukaelian and Mrs. Elena Winslow. After the festival, the school was presented with a Certificate of Honor recognizing the students and teachers. The Certificate concluded by saying: “Your art-work exemplifies the artistic abilities of the people that make San Francisco such a wonderful city. Thank you and good luck in your future endeavors!” See photographs of the art exhibit here.
