Congratulations to La France Elementary’s Super Artists for the month of October. This month, the Super Artists were nominated by their peers. This makes the honor especially important. Students were invited to make a nomination and give reasons for their choice. Students in grades 3-6 created online nominations and students in grades 1 and 2 wrote their nominations on paper forms. The students with the most nominations were chosen.
The Super Artists of the Month are featured on posters in the arts hallway. Be sure to stop by to look at their photos and read what their friends had to say about their super art powers.
