Of the arts program and the Fine Arts Gala, Bartow Middle Principal Pamela Henderson said, “I am proud of our students and faculty and their hard work, not only in academics, but in our arts programs as well. We celebrate student achievement at Bartow Middle, and the Gala was a great example of their accomplishments in the arts.”
On Oct. 17, students at Bartow Middle held a Fine Arts Gala to showcase their talents. The annual event featured students in Advanced Drama, Art, Band, Chorus, Keyboard and Orchestra classes. It was started four years ago when the arts faculty at Bartow Middle came together to provide an evening where each of their top students could celebrate their love of the arts.
