Wellington Elementary Participates In The Annual Race For The Arts

On Saturday, Feb. 28, Wellington Elementary School students and staff participated in the Color Me 4K and 5K Race for the Arts.

The event was designed to showcase the fine arts opportunities for students in Palm Beach County and help support the programs.

Both races took place at Dreher Park in West Palm Beach. Wellington Elementary was happy to take part and raise money for the music department.

In the Color Me 4K, participants started off as a blank canvas and were painted along the way. At the finish, participants ended up a “work of art.”

Attendees enjoyed music and artwork courtesy of Palm Beach County students. Art displays and performances took place along the race routes. Pre-K teacher Katherine Riker came in first in her age division. Fun was had by all while raising awareness of the Palm Beach County School District’s fine arts programs.
