Fayette Academy Makes Donation to Carl Perkins Center

As part of Fayette Academy’s Homecoming week festivities, the Student Government Association sponsored the “kiss the pig” contest. Several faculty members had jars and students voted by donating change to their favorite teacher’s jar. At the end of the week, Haylee Montague, elementary PE and middle school keyboarding teacher and cheer sponsor, received the most change in her jar. She kissed the pig at the Homecoming pep rally. The contest raised almost $300. Fayette Academy’s SGA donated this money and sponsored a cubby at the Carl Perkins Center. Fayette Academy is proud to have the Center as the school’s main philanthropy.

Artsonia

Fayette Academy’s Elementary Art classes are now participating in an online art gallery through the website www.artsonia.com.  Artsonia allows each student to build an digital student portfolio of their artworks across multiple school years.

Participating in Artsonia provides many benefits to our school, the teachers, the students, and their parents. It is a tool for communication about FA’s visual arts program between the teacher, parents, and family members. The teachers can explain what the students learned and what methods were used in the art creation process.  Family members are able to view the artwork, leave positive comments for their students, and purchase keepsakes with a portion of the proceeds supporting the school’s art program.  Artsonia allows the teacher to integrate technology in the classroom by teaching the students to upload their own completed works using their iPads.  The website also provides a means for integrating language arts as the students participate in expressing their thoughts through writing individual artist statements for their works.   Throughout the process, the teacher is able to access and monitor the school’s gallery and each student’s portfolio and provide feedback online.

Artsonia creates a safe, educational environment for all students to engage in the extension of the visual arts program at Fayettte Academy.
