Tony LaRussa

The North Hills School District will play host to its 47th annual “Arts Alive” event celebrating the creative accomplishments of students in kindergarten through high school from 5 to 9 p.m. on Friday, May 3.

The free event features student work in a variety of mediums including pottery, paintings, drawings, sculpture, photographs, school publications and writing projects.

The event also will feature work by students in the family and consumer science and technology education departments and performances from the music department throughout the evening.

“Arts Alive is a celebration of our students’ talents and creativity,” said Superintendent Patrick Mannarino. “This annual event provides an excellent opportunity for our community to experience the many opportunities available within North Hills School District.”

This year’s event includes:

• Artwork from all elementary students in grades four to six.

• Hands-on art making activities from 7 to 8 p.m. for elementary students in kindergarten through 3rd grade.

• North Hills Game Fest showcasing board games and video games created by district students.

• A selection of artwork from seventh- and eighth-grade classes and the district’s new eighth-grade art elective Digital Fabrication.

• An array of culinary options from the World Language Department that will be served to guests.

• An art gallery style event in the high school rotunda featuring pottery, photographic and film demonstrations. The artwork that is created will be available for purchase.

Coffee Buddha will be on hand to serve coffee, espresso, hot cocoa and other beverages from 5 to 7 p.m. in the high school lobby in exchange for a donation to the district’s art department.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
