The GHS Authors and Artists Fair celebrates the middle school students’ achievements throughout the year. Each middle school student was asked to create a presentation board which showcased their favorite written or visual works from their classes this year. At the fair, the students have the opportunity to explain why they are proud of their work and what they learned from doing each assignment. The event was started in 2010 as a way to honor the students’ visual and written work, which all too often gets shoved in a backpack after it is graded. The event puts the students’ work on display, emphasizing how hard they work throughout the school year, providing them with a chance to be recognized for their outstanding academic achievements. The Authors and Artists Fair also highlights how reading and writing are universal skills that are used in each subject area. It was a fun evening of celebration for the middle school students and our community. Thank you to all who volunteered for this event.
