Students from Charles F. Brush High School received 30 awards in the recent Annual Scholastics Art and Writing Competition, which showcased our school district’s talent among others in Cuyahoga County. The 30 awards received by Brush High students came as a result of judges sorting through 3,000 artwork submissions before choosing the finalists. Winning artwork from these 30 Brush Arcs students, along with other local winners in grades 7 through 12, was posted for public display at the Cleveland Institute of Art. Those students receiving the highest distinction of “Gold Key” will be judged at the national competition in New York City later this spring. Congratulations to the Brush High School artists who were among the top winners in all of Northeast Ohio.

Greenview Upper Elementary School would like to graciously thank the talented performers of Brush High School’s Soundsation Show Choir for delivering an exciting and upbeat program for its students recently. Showcasing a potent blend of dance, hip-hop and skillful choreography, Soundsation performed a variety of songs and offered a glimpse into this opportunity for future performers. Exposing students from different buildings to one another also helps smooth future transitions that they will inevitably encounter as well. Soundsation falls under the direction of Ms. Sara Ballou who is to be commended for her mentorship of these individuals. Thank you, Soundsation, for once again giving a tremendous performance to Greenview Upper Elementary Students.
The Ohio PTA, through the National PTA, holds an annual cultural arts program, Reflections. Children in preschool through grade 12 are encouraged to create and submit original works of art in any of six areas: dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography and visual arts. The theme this year was "Heroes Around Me". Students were encouraged to create work with this theme in mind. Congratulations to our 2018 winners!Pre-k - 2nd gradeLITERATURE1st place - Allie Ray - SunviewPHOTOGRAPHY1st place - Kale Ray - SunviewVISUAL ARTS1st place - Nathan Fovozzo - Sunview2nd place - Zachary Ockenden - Sunview3rd place - Diana Hardy - Adrian3rd grade - 5th gradeLITERATURE1st place - Gunner StClair - Greenview2nd place - Raia Adams - Rowland3rd place - Teshanna Clarke - AdrianPHOTOGRAPHY1st place - Maya Stanton - Greenview2nd place - McKenzie StClair - Sunview3rd place - Jason Rossi - GreenviewVISUAL ARTS1st place - Joseph Torres - Greenview2nd place - Curtis Bickham Jr. - Greenview3rd place - Massimo Tripi - Greenview6th grade - 8th gradePHOTOGRAPHY1st place - Chloe Alexander - MemorialVISUAL ARTS1st place - Karmyn Dancy - Memorial2nd place - Raia Freeman - Greenview3rd place - Anaiyah Mays - Greenview9th grade - 12th gradePHOTOGRAPHY1st place - Marc Saxe - Brush2nd place - Julia Kiefer - Brush3rd place - Amber Jones - BrushVISUAL ARTS1st place - Casidy Thomas - Brush2nd place - Princess Egbo - Brush
