March is Arts...
This week marks the start of the month of March, one of the most dreaded months of the school year by many simply because it is long and cold. However, there are many exciting things that happen every year during the month of March, including recognition of students involved in the arts. Believe it or not, March is both Youth Art Month and Music in Our Schools month. Throughout the entire month, students will have opportunities to display their talents and hone their skills in both of these unique areas. To kick off the month, the Rome City School District All-City Concert will be held at RFA on Wednesday, March 1 beginning at 7:00 p.m., which will be followed by the opening of the Youth Art Exhibit at the Cinema Capitol Gallery in Rome this Friday, March 3rd. The public gallery of student work will remain on display throughout the month of March. Beyond these two cornerstone events, students will have many additional opportunities throughout the month to display their talents and abilities. Thank you to the amazing art and music teachers of the Rome City School District for continuing to grow and advance the arts in our community. We are fortunate to have a large, talented, and dedicated visual and musical arts faculty that is constantly working to share their love of the arts with our students and community. For more information about arts activities occurring this month in your student's school, please contact the school directly.
