STARS SHINE AT SUMTER PRIMARY SCHOOL
THE "JOLLY JINGLE JAM" SHARES STUDENT TALENTS AT SUMTER COUNTY PRIMARY Soft Christmas music greeted students, teachers and guests at two performances of the Imagination Factory of the Sumter Primary Fine Arts Academy. After a greeting by Principal Cindy Hughes, the show began with a Christmas Island Music Video produced by five members of the Digital Designers. The program continued with holiday celebrations by the Kid's Company, Cool Keys, Child's Play, Rising Musicians, and Primary Players.
The Imagination Factory is composed of 119 students in six areas of graphic and musical creativity. "We are blessed to have such teacher leadership and creative students in our Fine Arts program at Sumter County Primary. With the current economic cutbacks, fine arts is usually cut from school district programs. With the help and support of our Board of Education, parents and others, you will see that the Fine Arts of Sumter County Primary is alive and well," said Mrs. Hughes.
Child's Play is directed by Mrs. Jan Alston. Rising Musicians is directed by choral music teacher, Mrs. Becky Kerlin. Mrs. Becky Schabeck and Mrs. JoAnn Griffin direct the Digital Designers. Ms. Ginger Parker is the director of Primary Players. Mrs. Jennifer Richmond is the director of Kid's Company and Mrs. Judy Parks directs the keyboard talents of Cool Keys.
After each performance, guests were invited to view paintings, prints, Christmas Card designs and CD Christmas Ornament designs and art from K, 1st and 2nd grade students in the hallway adjacent to the school gymnatorium.
