The Northwest Georgia Band Exhibition at Armuchee High highlights the focus on the arts today in Floyd County Schools during National Arts in Education Week.  The marching band exhibition will be held at Armuchee High School's stadium and begin at 6 p.m.

The week beginning the second Sunday in September was designated as National Arts in Education Week by Congress in 2010.  During the week, the field of arts education joins in communities across the country to tell the story of the impact of the transformative power of the arts in education.  

“The fine arts has meant the world to me!” commented Christopher Morgan, a junior at Coosa High School who played the role of the phantom in the system-wide musical "Phantom of the Opera" last year. “Fine arts and theatre have and will be my life thanks to the amazing opportunities I have had and experienced.”

“Dance has helped me to discover my strengths and taught me what I need to work on to better my art,” stated Hunter McDaniel, a senior at Model High School. “Dance allowed me to discover confidence early on and to be who I really am.  I am so grateful to go to a school that has this program . . . really grateful!”
