Throughout the school year, John Lyman students in grades three and four worked on art projects connected to topics they studied. On Wednesday, June 8, their efforts were celebrated at an “Evening of the Arts.”
Some 80 students and their families attended the event, which included a concert and picnic.
“The purpose of the show was to bring our school community together to celebrate student accomplishments in the arts – music and visual arts,” Principal Tom Ford said. “These were our first concerts of the year and our first in-person art show since 2019.”
The art included paintings, ceramics, sculptures and embroidery.
Meanwhile, the third- and fourth-grade choruses performed a variety of selections separately, and came together for a closing number. The fourth-grade band kicked off the concert.
On the previous night, students in kindergarten, first and second grade had their own concert and art show. That occasion drew a crowd of about 100.
“We had a great turnout for both events,” Principal Ford said, “and our student artists and musicians did an amazing job.”
