Colonel Richardson High School celebrated students’ accomplishments at their Fifth Annual Arts and Academic Show. Families, CCPS board members and staff, and the community were invited to view student work from Project Lead the Way (PLTW), the Teacher Academy, Computer Science, Drama Club, and Visual Fine Arts departments. The entire student body was also invited to the show during the school day.

PLTW students had developed projects based on specific needs that included hearing tests, chicken house feeders, specialized pizza cutters, and horse treats. They researched their topic, developed possible solutions, tested the solutions, revised as needed and then presented their findings to their visitors in a professional manner.

The senior Teacher Academy students presented their culminating portfolios, shared their experiences throughout the year, and discussed the benefits of the program in both their high school career and future post-secondary education.

Computer Science students demonstrated various projects, including a computer tower built from scratch. Drama Club students danced and sang selections from their current performance “School House Rock”.

Fine Arts students displayed over 225 works of art created throughout the year. Media ranged from graphite to charcoal and acrylic, and low fire clays treated with various glazes and finishing techniques.

Marjorie Scott, CRHS Art teacher and event organizer, said, “Teaming up the visual arts and sciences is very important and really is a no-brainer because the two processes aren’t that much different.  Both encourage students to explore and learn using the tools and processes available.  These challenges and experiences that we give our students encourages them to grow into productive global citizens; in short, our future.  And with these students, the future looks great!”
