Art Teacher and Students Thrive at South Side School

June 30, 2016


“South Side School’s Art teacher Walt Lewandoski was named Elementary Art teacher of the Year by the CT Art Education Association. The award recognizes art educators for demonstrating excellence in the classroom, active participation and leadership, publication and/or exhibits, advocacy for the arts and other accomplishments in the field of art education. The South Side community held an art expo to honor Mr. Lewandoski raising $650 in his honor for the Jill Schaffrick and Sid Bernard Funds at the Main Street Community Foundation.

The Bristol Public Schools won 13 awards, 2 gold, 3 silver, and 8 honorable mention at the 2016 Scholastic Art Competition. Taylor Patnode won a top award. She received the CAAA-Best in printmaking for Group 1. Jade Vigue won a gold key and James Daniels, Janelle D’Emanuel and Abigail Cafe won silver keys. Bristol continues to be recognized for their excellent art programs.”

Congratulations South Side School for continually thriving in the arts departments. Thank you to Mr. Lewandoski for teaching his students the importance of the arts and sharing his passion. Stay artsy and all heart South Side!
