C.C. Meneley artwork on display

Staff reports

Artwork from kindergarten through 6th grade at C. C. Meneley Elementary School was on display on the walls of the school’s halls in time for the Meneley Art Show Dec. 16.

The Parent-Faculty Advisory Committee met that evening to hear an overview of the art program at CCMES by teacher Dave Reil and to tour the halls and see the children’s work. Student docents gave tours from 7 to 8 p.m.

Music and refreshments were available in the commons.

The show was designed to acquaint the community with the art curriculum and program as well as give parents the opportunity to view their children’s work in a show-like setting, according to CCMES Vice Principal Brian Frazier.

In addition, Lisa Raker, a 6th grade student in David Vasick’s class, signed the SuperStar Kid painting on the wall that evening. She designed the SuperStar mascot, which was the winner in the Student Council’s mascot contest.

Meneley has been the home of the SuperStars for many years, frazier said, but a face had never been put to the name.

The council took all of the student entries, narrowed the selections to 10 and had the student body vote in an election on which character they wanted as the mascot.
