GRANGER — Granger Elementary School students celebrated art and music March 14 as they hosted an art show and concert for family and friends.

Granger’s annual “Celebration of the Arts” showcases artwork from the entire student body, which includes kindergarten through fifth grades, according to district officials. Each student prepared three pieces for the show and fourth-grade students performed a music concert at the culmination of the evening. This year’s theme for the show was “Australia — The Land Down Under.”

According to art teacher Joan Zacharias, students had been working on their various art projects since January.

Granger students, along with art teacher Zacharias, built a replica of an Australian hut in the entrance way of the school. Shown at right bottom, from left, are Zacharias and students Matthew K’Myer, Ananya Ramasamy and Allyson Perhacs.
