The Bokoshe Parent Teacher Association hosted a student art show Wednesday
afternoon. Pieces of art from students in grades kindergarten through 12 were on
display at Bokoshe schools. The Bokoshe PTA is focusing on the arts this school year
and has planned monthly events to showcase the art of the student body. Participating
students were given no direction for the art work, but were encouraged to create as
they saw fit.
During the introduction to the show, PTA officials cited reports that showed a direct
correlation between art classes offered in school and a drop in disciplinary and
behavioral problems among students.
