Since we like to support our community, Applefest was a challenge we took on at the Middle School. We had multiple students design entries for the Applefest 2014 t-shirt contest - and we came out on top! This year, two of Mrs. Heller's students were recognized for their outstanding achievements in art with a first place winning drawing by 6th grade artist Alessandra Nunez (left) and a third place drawing by her twin sister Christine Nunez (right). Their designs may be viewed, along with all the Applefest t-shirt entries, in Akin's window on Main St. Mrs. Heller has seen nothing less than consistently strong artwork from these two dedicated girls. They are extremely focused and talented young artists. Congratulations!
