Louisa students trim the tree at Louisa Arts Center

Emily Weddle was one of the Talented and Gifted students from Louisa County Public Schools who helped decorate the Christmas tree at the Louisa Arts Center with ornaments they created out of musical score sheets and assorted craft materials.

This year the Louisa County Public Schools’ Talented and Gifted students continued their tradition of bringing joy to the Louisa Arts Center by decorating its Christmas tree. 

Not only did the students trim the tree, but they also made the ornaments themselves.

“This year’s TAG theme is music; therefore, musical score sheets were selected and incorporated into angel and circle ornaments,” said Bettye Dickinson, TAG teacher at Jouett Elementary and Thomas Jefferson Elementary.

In addition to creating ornaments, the students were also encouraged to present their talents to their peers and family members on the stage of the Haley-Cooke Theater in TAG’s first “Talent Showcase.”
