Maya Sanders came up with this year’s theme of “Christmas on Safari,” and students painted masks to produce a jungle that will be housed in the swamps of New Orleans City Park.

This year’s art honor society is the largest in school history, school leaders said.

National Art Honor Society officers from West St. John include Vice President Briana Grayman, President Glasia Walker and Treasurer Chris Holmes.
