March is Youth Art Month, and is a time when educators across the nation promote the visual arts and art education in our country. Congratulations to the following Ralph M.T. Johnson School students, 5th grade students Kayleigh C., Mia M., Mia N., and Giada R., and 4th grade students Gina A., and Indigo L., who have each had an outstanding work of art selected to be a part of the 2019 Connecticut Art Educator’s Association Youth Art Celebration.
What is YAC? The 2019 CAEA Youth Art Celebration is a preK-12th grade art show of highest caliber work created by students in Connecticut. It is a non-juried art show which celebrates the joy, expression, creation and success by school aged children.

Thank you for your outstanding efforts and congratulations on this achievement!!
On Monday, February 4, 2019 Johnson School had the pleasure of participating in the 20th Annual Celebration of the Arts, at the Aqua Turf Club in Southington, CT.
Our school honorees are fifth graders Preethika Shenoy and Aidan Badia. Both students were recognized for their outstanding citizenship, cooperative skills, and artistic ability in the performing and/or visual arts.
Both Preethika and Aidan 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, Mr. Robinson, Mrs. Liquori, Mrs. Galante, 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.
