On Monday, February 12, 2018 Johnson School had the pleasure of participating in the 19th Annual Celebration of the Arts, at the Aqua Turf Club in Southington, CT.
Our school honorees are fifth graders Lola Huseby and Cris Menendez. Both students were recognized for their outstanding citizenship, cooperative skills, and artistic ability in the performing and/or visual arts.
Both Lola and Cris are extraordinary students with exceptional skills in the arts. They are admirable individuals who are fair, honest, kind, compassionate, and helpful. They often exceed the expectations of their teachers and they are terrific role models for their peers.
Ms. McCue, Ms. Carpentier, Mrs. Liquori, Mrs. Claridge, and the students’ families attended this wonderful event to celebrate the efforts and achievements of these two fine individuals. Congratulations to you both!
I have been teaching art at Ralph M.T. Johnson School since 2001. I hope to encourage my students to use their creative experiences and become innovative explorers.
