Get In The Game...With A Farm To School Lunch

We would like to take the opportunity to congratulate sixth grader Chance Abrams for winning the district level poster contest for the “Get in the Game…with a Farm to School Lunch”. His artwork is currently at the state level.

Foley’s Cafeteria Staff asked Mrs. Weiner if any art students would be interested in participating with the contest, and her sixth graders absolutely loved the idea. They each choose to use board games as inspiration and came up with many wonderful ideas and drawings. Chance chose the Pac-Man game for his inspiration and did a wonderful job using the picture plane, drew nice and neat, and used complementary colors to grab viewer’s attention. His drawing consists of a student with a Pac-Man head and he goes around eating healthy farm grown foods on the way to school.

Congratulations Chance!
