Board Recognition: Copper Hill Student Artist

Congratulations to Juliana Lagen, a 4th-grade student at Copper Hill School! The Board of Education heard the great news that Juliana’s artwork was selected to be featured on the Flemington-Raritan Regional School District's annual postcard for Teacher Appreciation Week. Juliana’s piece, "Dreamcatcher," was chosen by her art teacher, Mrs. Melissa Griffis, to represent Copper Hill School and the exceptional artwork students have created this year. "Dreamcatcher" is colorful, vibrant and inspiring. It will certainly be enjoyed by all of our teachers and staff members who will receive the postcard during Teacher Appreciation Week, May 2-6. The Board is so proud of Juliana and her outstanding artwork.


The Board also recognized Copper Hill School Art Teacher, Mrs. Melissa Griffis, for her dedication, effort, passion for art education and commitment to supporting every student, every day, at every opportunity.
