ART NOTES by Vera Underwood

Congratulations to 4th grader Jordin Kelleher for winning 2nd place in the Epilepsy Foundation of VA art contest!  This annual contest is open only to 4th graders across the state.  The theme is “Use A Helmet, Prevent Epilepsy”.

Thirteen students volunteered to create artwork for the superintendent’s Rise Up for Education:  Interdisciplinary Project at the high school on February 27th.

PreK student Lilyana Tennyson was selected to create artwork for a special fundraising event for Smart Beginnings Rappahannock Area, an early childhood organization.

Selected PK, K and 1st grade students will have their artwork of Pete the Cat on display in the gym during author Eric Litwin’s visit on March 9th.

Good luck to the students participating in the upcoming Virginia School Board Association’s Regional Art Contest.

March is Youth Arts Month. Students will start working on their clay projects in a couple of weeks.  Donations of sandwich bags is needed and will be greatly appreciated.

A big thank you to parent volunteer Britnea St. John for cutting 22 banners for me in preparation for the CCPS art show in April!
