On Tuesday, Oct. 22, Wellington Elementary School participated in the Palm Beach County School District’s Showcase of Schools. The school was there to introduce its new Fine Arts Academy, which will be beginning next school year.
The Fine Arts Academy was recently approved by the Palm Beach County School District.
Principal Dr. Maria Vaughan strongly believes that the Fine Arts Academy will enhance the school’s academic program. The arts will be integrated with all subjects.
The music department will grow and offer chorus, advanced chorus, the production of school plays and learning to play various instruments. The arts program is being taught on a more advanced level now, but will also be able to expand.
The Wellington Elementary School booth was crowded with parents and prospective students asking questions and looking at the school plays showing on the screen. Sixth-grade alumni, current fifth-grade students and staff answered questions and discussed their music and art experiences and information about the new academy. For more info., call (561) 651-0600.
