WCA Art News
Piedmont Athens Regional Hospital offers a program called “Peds Painters” which showcases local student artwork (grades 1-8) in the pediatric unit. This exhibit was created to brighten the hallways and to bring hope and smiles to their youngest patients and their families.
Local schools are invited to submit one piece of art to be displayed over each of the three seasons of the school year. This fall, WCA fifth grader, Izalou Morecraft’s collage was chosen for the exhibit. Congratulations, Izalou!
Westminster is honored to participate in this special program.
Here they are . . . our Honor Roll Students for Fall Quarter 2016!
Congratulations to our Lower School and Middle School Honor Roll students for the Fall Quarter 2016! Keep up the great work!
