This past week, the Reading Public Schools celebrated the Arts and celebrated learning with two major events; the annual Arts Fest on April 14/15, and the Blueprint for Excellence Educational Institute on April 16/17. Both events emulate what our school district is all about; supporting student learning and fostering an environment that allows innovation and creation. It was truly a week of celebration!
Arts Fest began seven years ago by Elementary Music Teacher Al Mosier and RMHS Director of Fine and Performing Arts William Endslow as a way to celebrate the visual and performing arts in our school district. Today, Arts Fest is alive and well with 1-12 student art work beautifully portrayed up and down “Main Street” of Reading Memorial High School and student performances of elementary, middle school, and high school band and chorus groups. Below are several photos from Arts Fest.
None of this would have been possible without the incredible talents and efforts of our art and music teachers. A special thanks goes out to all of them for putting together such a fantastic celebration of the Arts.
