Under the coordination of first grade teacher Marcie Johnson, Johnstonville Elementary School hosted a Recycled Art Show from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, May 8.
The event showcased arts and crafts that incorporated recyclable household items, to stress the importance of environmental conservation. Each class participated in creating a project for display. In addition to the class projects, students were encouraged to participate in an individual art and poetry contest.
The event had a great turn out. Families had an opportunity to work on collaborative projects, and explore with recyclables to create more fun pieces of art.
Also part of the festivities, Thomas and Linda Braun performed live music and there was an ice cream social.
The winners are as follows:
Art Contestant winners:
Elizabeth Faria, second grade
Brylee Leslie, third grade
Clark Brazil, Kindergarten
Poetry contestant winners:
Iris Rice, first grade
