Murray, Ky., May 4----Murray Middle School recently hosted its annual Arts Night at MMS by Gena Maley, art teacher, Beth Stribling, band director, Charles Haney, music teacher, and Angie Murdock, technology teacher.
A main strength of MMS is the ability of its Arts team to provide all the students the tools to explore, enrich and apply their talents and creative interests. During the annual event students are provided the opportunity to share their talents with other students, parents, & the community while showcasing projects and presentations created throughout the year in grades 4-8.
Artworks were on display throughout the Arts hallways and cafeteria. Students also demonstrated their performance talents through speech, poetry, dance, technology, jazz band and a variety of ensembles. Outstanding Artists Awards were recognized and presented to students in each grade level during the closing reception.
