In February, students at Bowling Green Elementary (BGE) and Lewis and Clark Elementary (LCES) participated in an art contest commemorating the 150th year of the signing the Emancipation Proclamation. The contest was sponsored by the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Commission for all Virginia students, grades K – twelve. Students were asked to illustrate the theme: “Emancipation Proclamation: Out of Bondage…Into Freedom.” To commemorate this event, the Commission hosted a concert with the Richmond Symphony on April 13, 2013 where the art work of all student participants was shown via video. The concert held at Richmond Center Stage was be rebroadcasted on Thursday, April 25, 2013 at 9pm on WCVE Public Television.
We have just received notification that, in addition to the participants having their art work displayed at the concert, plans are also being made to display them in the General Assembly Building in Richmond during the next session, as well as during the unveiling of the Commemorative Plaques of the African-American men who were elected to the Underwood Convention after the Civil War and to the General Assembly during Reconstruction. Students’ art may be viewed on the Commission’s website (date to be determined by the Commission). http://mlkcommission.dls.virginia.gov/lincoln/projects.html#Project3n

On Saturday, May 11th, the Caroline Middle School strings participated in the King’s Dominion Festival of Music at the park. The orchestra performed three selections for judges, including “Samba La Bamba,” “Fiddler’s Hoedown,” and “Simple Square Dance.” On a scale from one to five, with one being the best, the strings were awarded a two, or an ‘excellent’ rating. For their first ever rating, this was a wonderful achievement! Congratulations to the strings students on their fantastic work, and an outstanding concert season! And congratulations to Mrs. Mary Yanos for your outstanding work with the CMS Orchestra!
