Love The Arts Event
In keeping with our on-going commitment to global achievement and awareness, and in celebration of our growing arts programs, Antioch Elementary students, staff, and PTO held a "Love the Arts" evening on February 11th, 2011. The evening consisted of globally themed performances by our Drama Club, led by Mrs. Lisa Hansen. They performed a Mayan folktale called The Gift of the Hummingbird to honor our country of Belize. We also had a compilation of international songs performed by the choir, led by Mr. Homer Graham. In addition to these performances, artwork by Antioch students was displayed and the winners of a school-wide essay contest were on hand to read their submissions.
The winners of the writing contest were Rayan Patel from Mrs. Mode's kindergarten class, Ian Funk from Mrs. Donovan's 1st grade class, Cameron Carr from Ms. Anderson's second grade class, Reilly Wood from Ms. Bruch's third grade class, Arianna Schwartz from Mrs. Sarcona's fourth grade class, and Michaela McDuffie from Mrs. Ries' fifth grade class.
