Key Middle School held a “Pictures and Prose” Region 3 Art Show and Literary Fair for its five feeder schools Thursday, April 26, 2018 off Franconia Road in Springfield. The event, geared to students in elementary, middle and high school, highlighted students’ art work and helped promote literacy with various games and activities. There was Harry Potter trivia, Wordless Picture Books, some Robotics activities and games of Taboo, for example. The idea was that literacy takes place in all subject areas, not just reading and writing. In addition, two local authors signed copies of their books – Tracey Kyle, who is also a Spanish teacher at Key Middle, and Brian Herberger of the Fairfax County Central Office who works in ESOL Services with Fairfax County Schools. Food trucks were also parked outside offering pizza, chicken and SnowCones.
