Students Show off Art in Show!

Art students from both Jefferson and Syringa put on quite a show, an art show that is, on Saturday afternoon in the Caldwell Public Library. The day provided an opportunity for the students to show off their latest creations in a public forum. Many, including V. Principal Ben Krahenbuhl, had great things to say about the effort that students had put forth in creating their pieces. "(It was) fun to see students showing off their work to their parents and family members," Krahenbuhl noted about the day. Congratulations to our students and art teachers (Jennifer Condel of JMS and Joel Free of Syringa).
