New student artwork will soon grace the halls of Schuylerville Elementary and Middle Schools. The district recently purchased four pieces of student artwork to become part of its permanent collection. The pieces of art were shown at the Washington County Fair over the summer and then voted on by teachers in the district.

“It’s great to continue a tradition that’s been going on for more than two decades,” art teacher Michael Shea said. “We have some very artistic students and it is wonderful to showcase their talents while brightening up our hallways.”

The student artists include: Maleah Cherry (grade 1), Mia Van Veghten (grade 1), Madelynn Merrill (grade 3) and Sofie Lamodi (grade 6).
