Seven district 5th graders attended the Creative Arts Festival in Wautoma in early May. These students were chosen by their Music and Art teachers based on their advanced level of learning in both of those areas, as well as academics. At the event, students participated in an all-day session, learning and creating along with students from 9 area districts. Students attended sessions including “Ice Cream Art”, “Graphic Design”, “Recycled T-Shirt Weaving”, “Mindful Drawing”, and “Come Stum With Me”. At the end of the day student artwork was displayed in an art showcase, and performance groups performed on stage.

They attended with Mrs. Hittman and Mr. Mellen, Art and Music teachers at East & K-2 North Freedom. Mrs. Hittman also presented a session on "Sculpting with Wire." Students that attended were Adriana & Bailey from ABE, Christopher & Paige from East, Lacey and Declan from GLW, and Gibson from North Freedom.
