The School District of Fort Atkinson has partnered with the Dwight Foster Public Library to display art from the 4-year-old kindergarten (4K) program in the Fort Atkinson library’s children’s area.
One of the seven different 4K locations will be highlighted each month, and a districtwide 4K art display will be featured in late-January through February.
A reception for all 4K family members and the general public will be held Tuesday, Jan. 28, from 5 to 6:30 p.m.
The partnership between the school district and library was brainchild of Rachel Broadhead, 4K learning aide. Last school year, she coordinated a display at the library of artwork from Ruth Shuda’s 4K class at Purdy Elementary School, and also was thinking about holding a bigger 4K art reception there.
“The public library is always looking for ways to collaborate with the school district and this seems like a great opportunity,” said Minetta Lippert, Dwight Foster Public Library youth services librarian.
“The art displays are beautiful and cheerful and really elevate our bulletin board space. We also hope that the art displays will encourage 4K students and their families to visit the public library.”
