ARTS ACADEMY AT THE YOUTH LEADERSHIP SUMMIT

Arts Academy students are inspired and ready for action after attending the Youth Leadership Summit on Youth Voice and Positive School Climate that took place on October 14, 2014 at the Legislative Office Building in Hartford.  Our students were given the opportunity to hear from various State Representatives, Senators, members of the Department of Education on the state and national level, numerous superintendents from districts across the state, and most importantly,  other student leaders from several Connecticut high schools.  Grammy Award Winning Lady Gaga's mother was also here, representing her daughter's foundation that celebrates diversity and empowers youth called "Born This Way."  The six student leaders from our school also offered up excellent examples to those in attendance of how the Academy supports a positive school climate and encourages our students to take initiative and create positive for the school community and beyond.  BRAVO to our students for participating in this learning opportunity and for representing the Arts Academy so wonderfully!
