Gov. Bent Hosts First Art, Literacy & Dessert Night

More than 400 people attended what the school hopes to make an annual event.

Governor Bent Elementary School hosted its first Art, Literacy, and Dessert Night on Thursday, April 9. Students created art pieces to display along with written statements. Families and community members were invited to come and enjoy the artwork, live music, delicious desserts, and a silent auction.

A station was also set up for children and adults to participate in creating a community art project that will hang in the school’s cafeteria.  

The event was a huge success with students proudly sharing their creativity and hard work with the 410 attendees. 

Based on overwhelming positive feedback, the school hopes to add this to its yearly calendar as part of its efforts to engage the wider community.
