Germantown School District Students And Staff Celebrate Youth Art Month In March

March 27, 2011

March is Youth Art Month and National Craft Month. Youth Art Month (YAM) is an annual observance to emphasize the value of art and art education for all children and to encourage public support for quality school art programs. The Council for Art Education (CFAE), a sponsor of YAM, adopted the national theme, “Start with Art, Learn for Life.” High school art teacher Chris Neuman commented, “Art Education develops self-esteem, appreciation of the work of others, self-expression, cooperation with others, and critical thinking skills. All of these skills are vital to the success of our future leaders – our children.”

 

To celebrate Germantown School District student’s artistic expression and achievement, there is a district-wide art exhibition at the Germantown Community Library, running from Wednesday, March 2 through Wednesday, March 30. Community members are encouraged to visit the library to view the amazing talent emerging throughout the district and to support the arts.

 

This year, the seven Germantown School District art teachers held the First Annual YAM Reception on Tuesday, March 8 from 6:00 – 8:00 pm at the community Library. The opening reception was a huge success! Parents, family members, friends and students packed the library to view the art. The consensus was awe and amazement of the creative, artistic talent K-12 art students expressed throughout the exhibit. Numerous local businesses donated refreshments and beverages for this event. High school art teacher, Traci Gentilli stated, “We greatly appreciate the donations, kindness, and interest to support the Arts. Thank you again to Cake and Bake, Starbucks, Pick N Save and Germantown’s High School Student Council.”

 

Art instructors, Traci Gentilli and Chris Neuman, wish to express their immense gratitude and enthusiasm for the opportunity to be a part of such an amazing educational community, including star students shining their light every day!

 

The Village and Town of Germantown, and the Village of Richfield, Town of Polk, and Town of Jackson are served by the dedicated Germantown School District. Students receive excellent educational opportunities through the district’s six schools which include: Amy Belle, County Line, MacArthur and Rockfield Elementary Schools, Kennedy Middle School and Germantown High School. The district’s regular curriculum, led by a treasury of knowledgeable faculty and staff, is complemented by an array of specialized programs and co-curricular activities.
