Artstanding Friday, May 19th, at LHS!
Dear Vernon School Community,
Please join us at our annual “Artstanding” program held on the indoor and outdoor campus of Lounsberry Hollow School on Friday, May 19th, from 5:00 to 8:00 pm, one of our largest community activities of the year.
This annual art festival is an event you and your family do not want to miss. “Artstanding” features student artwork, student performances, interactive opportunities, tie dye station, mural creation, drum circle, and food.
Food is for purchase, cash only, as well as other novelties. This fantastic night out is a free event, open to the public, designed to highlight the VTSD students’ work within the visual, performing, and practical arts from grades K-12. This program would not be possible without the generous support and a Pride Grant from the Vernon Township Education Association and the NJEA, as well as the support of the parents and guardians of the Executive School and Community Association. This festival, featuring music, visual art, theatrical productions, dancing, robotics, technology, culinary creations, virtual reality, and hands-on activities, is fun for the whole family. Don’t miss it!
This week’s Board of Education meeting was filled with celebrations. First, we had the swearing-in of our re-elected members Joe Sweeney, Kelly Mitchell, & Jen Pellet. Then we had our new Superintendent, Russ Rogers, and Assistant Superintendent, Rosemary Gebhardt, officially promoted. Last but not least, we honored our dedicated Vernon staff that retired between June and December – Congratulations to all, and thank you for your years of service to our community and children!
