The six dancers were among students who helped celebrate School Board Recognition Month.
Six third grade students from Beechview Elementary School wowed the audience at Tuesday night's Farmington Public Schools Board of Education meeting, with a Japanese fan dance. Emma Anzivino, Ella D'Errico, Christina Carr, Miranda Burke, Janie Thurston and Lily Schwalm, all third graders, gave up their recess time to practice their dance, teacher MiSuk Drews said. The performance was among several tributes paid by students in honor of School Board Appreciation Month: Additional presentations are expected at the board's Jan. 29 meeting. Correction: The contribution from Power Upper Elementary students was inadvertently omitted from the original list of gifts.
