Connecticut Association of Schools (CAS) Art Awardees

Congratulations to Makenzie Robillard and Lucy Patterson, the Goshen Center School recipients of the Connecticut Association of School's Celebration of the Arts Awards. This award is given to two sixth grade students from each Connecticut school who show outstanding ability in the performing or visual arts. Citizenship and cooperation skills are also taken into consideration.


Mackenzie participates in both the elementary concert band and inter-elementary jazz band. This year, Mackenzie has auditioned for the annual Middle School Northern Regional Music Festival. Mackenzie is dedicated in not only the performing arts, but in the visual arts as well. Lucy participates in both the elementary concert band and the inter-elementary jazz band. She is the most advanced elementary trumpet player in the district. This year, Lucy has auditioned for the annual Middle School Northern Regional Music Festival.


In addition to being strong in the instrumental arts, Lucy is innovative in the visual arts.

The award recipients from Goshen Center School, James Morris School, and Warren School joined awardees from other Connecticut schools at the CAS Elementary Arts Banquet on Monday evening. They were joined by their family members, Mrs. Birdsall, Mrs. Bills, Ms. Cook, and Mrs. Sweet.

Northern Regional Band Performers

Lucy Patterson auditioned for the Northern Region band in January after months of preparation. She received word that she made it into the band, and is now preparing for that wonderful experience! In March, she will spend a weekend with students from all over the Northern region of Connecticut rehearsing for and performing a concert of very advanced music, along with two other elementary students from Region 6. We wish her all the best for this exciting opportunity!
