Student artwork displayed in administration building
The Parkland School District Administration Building recently featured the best artwork from students in the various schools from kindergarten through 12th grade.
In the spring, at the arts festival at the high school, Richard Shemonsky, chairman of the art department for the middle and high schools, along with other teachers, chose the best to be exhibited in the rotating art collection.
The Parkland Education Foundation paid for the framing and display of the student art.
A few of the winning entries from past years also remain on display.
