The Mayor and Council of the City of LaFayette commend North LaFayette Elementary, Gilbert Elementary and LaFayette Sixth Grade Academy students and staff for their hard work and excellent projects for the Georgia Cities Week contests.
The City of LaFayette recognized the importance of creative writing, art and music programs in schools. The goal of the Chattooga Academy (John B. Gordon Hall) art contest at North LaFayette and Gilbert Elementary schools was to propose a project that would teach students about their local government and how city services improve their quality of life.
The City of LaFayette congratulates the following students for their outstanding work:
Gilbert Elementary winners Hannah Fallon, B.J. Harris and Anna Jackson
Gilbert runners-up Zammie Phillips, Megan Butler, and Keely Ferrell
North LaFayette winners Devan Cunningham, Brooklin Henry and Kurt Ingram
North LaFayette runners up Isaac Colbert, Paige Roberts, and a group project by Randi King, Lauren Motley and Melanie Hunter
Sixth Grade Academy winner Hannah S.E. Jackson
Sixth Grade Academy runner-up Elizabeth Roper
The City thanks Melissa Farmer, North LaFayette Elementary; Chris Sandow, Gilbert Elementary; and Karen Stoker, Sixth Grade Academy for their work to coordinate these projects and their eagerness to assist the city to make this first time project a success.
The City of LaFayette hope to collaborate with these schools next year on similar projects.
