Western Hills PTA Receives Award
The Western Hills PTA/Fine Arts Committee has been awarded the inaugural Creativity Champion AWE (Art Within Everything) Award by the Metro Arts Alliance Board of Directors. The award is given by the Metro Arts Alliance as a way to honor and celebrate artistic and creative excellence in Iowa.
The award was presented April 5 at the John Deere Financial Worldwide Headquarters during the A Taste of Spring celebration.
The PTA’s Fine Arts Committee plans an annual Fine Arts Day, a full day of hands-on fine arts activities for the students of Western Hills. Professional artists are invited to the school to conduct those activities. Students travel between classrooms to experience various forms of art that they may not be exposed to in a general classroom setting. Last year’s event brought 18 artists to the school and encouraged students to explore the arts in a multitude of mediums.
Thank you to our PTA for all of your hard work . Our school is a better place because of your efforts!
