    Student Arts

    Showcase held Feb. 23

    Sandi Bastedo from Wayne County Cooperative Extension welcomed the Clyde-Savannah Elementary students, parents and guests to their event held at SOAR/SPAN offices in Clyde. About 75 turned out to enjoy the artwork, refreshments and to listen to the band, “Clyde-Savannah Synergy” led by Mr. Robert Humphrey. The band is a group of Clyde-Savannah High School Students who perform an eclectic mix of contemporary music. Humphrey is a music teacher at Clyde-Savannah Elementary and volunteers his time with the group. Tony Van Curen, Elementary art teacher, arranged with the hosts to display his students artwork at their office to encourage the students and display the talents of the students. This is the first Arts Showcase and might not be the last, judging from the community support. Van Curen plans to have the students participate in the Savannah Art Festival at the MAC show to be held Sept 24-25, so if you missed the event this last week, you can plan on seeing more at the MAC. Hometown Deli catered the event, providing a fruit tray and vegetable tray for refreshments.
