HMES Students Decorate Merry Trees for FAM Exhibit

The Fredericksburg Area Museum is proud to announce the fifth annual Merry Trees exhibit. FAM’s gallery spaces will be filled with trees decorated by Hugh Mercer Elementary School students. Each tree is inspired by a book the students have read in the classroom. FAM is excited to continue this partnership with Fredericksburg City Schools.


This exhibition is a celebration of art, literature, the holiday season, and Fredericksburg’s elementary students.


Merry Trees will be on display December 5th through December 29th, 2020. We invite everyone young and old to come and visit the FAM this holiday season. FAM members and children under the age of 10 are free.

Self-Care & Social, Emotional Wellbeing Workshop

The COVID-19 pandemic and all of its uncertainty has added additional stressors and anxiety for many individuals. Managing a remote work and a virtual learning environment while trying to maintain a normal home life balance has become overwhelming for many families and professionals. We can no longer look at self-care as a luxury but rather prioritize it as a necessity. You can take steps now to manage these changes and the roller coaster of emotions that arise daily. When you make “you” a priority, you are better equipped to handle stress, avoid burnout, and remain centered to help your family and students cope with the many changes the pandemic has thrown your way. This interactive workshop will shed light on the importance of self-care and social, emotional wellbeing during these uncertain times. This hour has been designed with you in mind. You are worth the investment in you!
