Student artwork showcased at 2015 Superintendent’s art show

The halls of the Union County Public Schools’ Central Services were a buzz of activity Thursday when the 2015 Superintendent’s Student Art Showcase took center stage. Art teachers from each of the system’s 53 schools selected two pieces of artwork to represent their school in the art show. Dr. Mary Ellis established the event in 2013 in order to meet the young artists and recognize their work. “We are honored to have our students’ artwork displayed in our Central Services office,” said Dr. Mary Ellis, superintendent. “Each time we walk the hallways, we are reminded of our students’ talents and artistic skills."

5th Grade Celebrates Chinese New Year

Ms. Lockrem’s 5th grade class celebrated Chinese New Year, Gung Hey Fat Choy! The students learned about traditional Chinese New Year celebrations. They created Fun Facts sheets, decorations, and masks that are similar to what is used in Chinese New Year parades. With their creations, they put on a parade for the kindergarten students at New Town Elementary. Some of the students went into each class and taught the kindergartners a few things they have learned about Chinese New Year. Along with the celebration and parade, a parent came to talk about China and the Chinese culture with the students. This was a great opportunity for the students to learn about China and their culture. She also brought different artifacts from China for the students to see, and foods to taste. This was a fun learning experience for all the students!
