'Museum' to honor academy students
Academy at the Lakes will host its "Day of Achievement" from 9 to 11 a.m. Friday in the gym at the school, 2331 Collier Parkway.
Students in grades 1-4 are scheduled to be recognized for their many achievements during the academic year. Students each become mini-curators of their own important accomplishments academically, athletically and artistically by creating displays of those features of achievement unique to each student.
The event allows students to create a collective "museum" and visitors are invited to view the displays and visit with each curator. The Day of Achievement is designed to replace the traditional awards assembly where certain students were recognized for school-based accomplishments only.
The school also will host a student art show at Frame by Frame Gallery at 16035 Tampa Palms Blvd. in New Tampa. Gallery owner Steve Rothfarb will host the event, which will be launched with a reception for the student artists and their guests at 2 p.m. today.
The show will conclude on Wednesday.
For more information on either event, call the development office at Academy at the Lakes at (813) 948-6823.
