Student and teacher earn ABE awards
We had a student and a teacher receive awards at the Art Business Education Consortium 40th anniversary awards luncheon in April. Fifth grade student Jayden Lee won The Mary Lou Anderson Scholarship Award - $100 each toward art enrichment opportunities. Mary Lou as a founder of the ABE Consortium. Our art teacher, Katherine Whatley, was awarded the Distinguished Visual/Literary Arts Teacher award. Katie mentors a before-school Art Club, sponsors the LEGO Robotics Club, and coordinates the Winter Art Gala and Student Awards committee. Most importantly, Katie was a key player in convincing the Colorado Board of Education to accept Widefield Elementary in fall of 2019 as a Visual and Performing Arts Innovation School.
