So many great things continue to happen in all of our Franklin West schools this year, but unfortunately due to safety protocols associated with COVID (which continue to loosen up as we approach spring), our community is not able to appreciate them fully. When you walk the halls of Fletcher Elementary, Georgia Elementary and Middle School or BFA-Fairfax, you are surrounded by our students’ artwork. Throughout the building, you can see examples of class art projects, student-designed murals, and photographs created by students from PreK through Grade 12. These displays are updated regularly by our art teachers and viewed respectfully and appreciated by students and staff every day. Rather than describe each one of them to you, I will go with the adage that “a picture is worth a thousand words”. It will save you from reading an 18-page blog post describing art and allow you to see firsthand the amazing work of our students in all of our schools. Please enjoy this virtual FWSU art gallery:
These displays would not be possible without the vision and dedication of our Franklin West art teachers: Cassandra Gengras, Dorsey Hogg, Sara Wolfson, Kim Desjardins, Marc Choiniere, and Jennifer Hart. Thank you all.
