Students in preschool all the way to grade 6 worked under the direction of Rebecca Carleton  (RES Art) to create, not one, not three, but SIX Rainbow Peace Poles at the Randolph Elementary School in Randolph, Vermont. The Youth Art Peace Pole Project can’t thank Ms. Carleton and all the students at Randolph Elementary enough for taking on this project ON THEIR OWN. The students at Randolph Elementary  displayed all their Peace Poles at The Tunbridge Worlds Fair and  got a ribbon and  their six Peace Poles were  seen by thousands of  people at the Fair. Ms. Carleton wrote to say “Thanks for giving us this great project to work on and easy to follow directions.”

YAPPP would like to mention that Ms. Carleton won the the National Art Education Association  “Elementary Art Educator of the Year” for the Eastern U.S. Region. You can read the story in “The Herald of Randolph” at: http://www.ourherald.com/news/2014-04-10/Front_Page/RESs_Carleton_Wins_National_Award.html

It so happens that the YAPPP was announced to the world at the NAEA National Convention in 2012.

Well, Rebecca Carleton, you and all the youngsters at Randolph Elementary are amazing!!!
