Families, art, music, dance performances, and laughter filled the halls of the Whitcomb school on March 30, at Marlborough Public School's annual city wide art show. Throughout the school, a wide variety of artwork from kindergarten - twelfth grade was proudly displayed. For the first-time this year, the art show added a cultural component consisting of student performances which included Capoeira, a Brazilian martial arts that combines elements of dance, acrobatics and music, a solo Indian traditional dance performance, and a colorful Mariachi dance troupe. In addition, the high school's Dream Team led a Tree of Life participatory activity for families where all ages were invited to dip their hands in colorful paint and put their handprints on a large canvas. As shown in the photo, Julie Baker (left), the district's Art Coordinator for grades K - 12 and Lynne Medailleu (right), Director of English Learners, collaborated to invigorate this year's art show into a major cultural event. Congratulations to all the talented students and many teachers who came together for a spectular night of family fun, creativity and joy!
