Lufkin art students are busy indeed throughout the year! Art elective students and art club members make a difference in our community by sharing their talents, exhibiting their art work and representing our school at different venues.
Our students partner with parents and staff to roll out Lufkin's annual Spooky Walk, which not only entertains a significant crowd from our school population but draws many community stakeholders to our school for an evening of thrills.
Another annual event that promotes Lufkin in our community on a much larger scale is the NC State Fair Student Art Exhibit at the Kerr Scott Building. Lufkin is among a significant number of schools in our state that showcases their students' artistic talent.
We are fortunate at Lufkin to have an active PTA that supports the Reflections Contest in order that all of our students have an opportunity to participate. This is our 3rd consecutive year in which our school will host judges in the Fall who narrow the submissions to 12 for the district competition held in the Spring.
Other visual art shows in which Lufkin participates includes showcasing our student art at the Cary Community Library and the WCPSS Crossroads I building throughout the year, the Gifts of Gold Contest in March and the Kaleidoscope Art Show at the Cary Mall in April.
As announced on our Home page, several Lufkin students not only represented our school well in the countywide PTA Reflections Contest, but several also walked away with awards that will be presented by the WCPSS Superintendent in a March awards ceremony.
Congratulations to all of our students who participated in the first Lufkin Road Middle Reflections Call for Entries in many years! You all are winners for creating an exciting atmosphere filled with the type of competitive and creative energy that makes great things happen!
All contest participants will be invited to an exclusive
LRMS PTA Reflections Celebration event, where each will
be recognized for their outstanding effort. An art exhibit showcasing all of the entries will be set up at school so everyone may enjoy the art work that was kept under wraps since November.
