For the past few weeks, Devereux has become backpack fanatics and, finally, we can start to wrap up this campaign. Full Story >>

The Art Corner
“Children also have artistic ability, and there is wisdom in their having it! The more helpless they are, the more instructive are the examples they furnish us; and they must be preserved free of corruption from an early age.” — Paul Klee

Love’s Light

There shines a light so bright and clear, It makes a sound I can almost hear, It whispers to me deep inside, And brings up feeling I cannot hide, They show themselves sometimes in fear, But in the end it proves to be, The light of love shining on me. -- written by a Devereux student
