It’s hard to believe, but it’s true…another year has come and gone. I would like to reflect on this seemingly short year. Students have been busy all year creating and composing their best art work. Many of them have participated in, or won art contests. Needless to say, I am ecstatic. The most recent event was the Annual County Wide Art Show. I am proud to say that BGE had over 135 pieces of art work. Many students placed in the art show; including two in the category of “Best in Show.” All student winners received ribbons for their work. I have enjoyed working with your children this year and I look forward to doing the same next year. Please encourage your students to practice their art skills over the summer. Until next year…have a great summer!
The Annual County-Wide Art Show will take place on Friday, May 1, 2015. It will be held at Caroline High School on Rogers Clark Boulevard from 5:00 pm. to 8:00 p.m. The show will feature artwork from all of the schools in the county, grades pre-k to twelve. Ribbons will be given to the winners. In addition there will be musical performances by the students and refreshments will be served. This is one of the most exciting events in the county each year. What better way to display the talents of our students. We look forward to seeing you there to share in this momentous occasion. Please keep that date!
Bowling Green Elementary is proud to announce that for the third year consecutively, one of our students has placed First in the State for the Virginia Epilepsy Foundation Art Contest. The purpose of the contest is to raise awareness of the occurrence of brain injury in children who don’t wear protective helmets when participating in certain activities. Madison was one of twelve students selected out of approximately 700 participants from around the State of Virginia. She received a beautiful certificate and was invited to attend the Virginia General Assembly in Richmond. In addition, her work will be featured in a 2015 calendar. Great job, Madison!
