Thank you for another successful Art Auction!
The 7th Annual Student Silent Art Auction was a great success! We are so proud of our students and so thankful to everyone who came out to support their talent.
Here are some highlights from what was a great night.
Students proudly displayed their art and shared the story behind each piece.
Lots of smiles were shared as patrons bid on their favorite student created masterpieces.
Over 60 pieces of art found happy homes by the end of the night.
Lars Beck was joined by Lee Stabert to honor her father, Stan Wolfe, founder of Young Scholars Charter School. A framed Yale pennant, Stan’s alma mater, will be displayed at the school in his honor. For information on how you can sponsor your own alma mater’s pennant, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Special thanks to our event team: Julia Silvasy, Manager of External Relations at Scholar Academies, and our event co-chairs Courtney Disston, Gail Tomassini, and Eileen Smith.
Scholars get “Wild” for Read Across America!
Where the Wild Things Are. The Magic School Bus. Three Little Pigs. These are just a few of the character themes popping up at Young Scholars Frederick Douglass Charter School during our annual Read Across America Celebration.
Ms. Honeyford won Best Costume for this getup from Where the Wild Things Are.
Read Across America Day kicked off with Parent and Family Read Aloud time from Kindergarten through Third Grade, followed by Buddy Reading. Elementary students selected a book of their choice for their middle school “buddies” to read to them.
The afternoon dedicated 20 minutes to Drop Everything And Read (DEAR), among other reading activities throughout the day.
A highlight for the students always includes teachers throughout the school dressing up as characters from their favorite books.
