November 14, 2022

(NOVEMBER 2022)—Valley Stream UFSD Thirteen is proud to announce that several students’ artwork was featured at the recent 2022 New York State School Boards Association (NYSSBA) Conference. The art pieces were part of the student art digital exhibit presented at the NYSSBA conference that highlighted the creative talents of student artists from across the state.

“The NYSSBA art exhibit provides our students with a wonderful opportunity to show their talents along with some of the state’s most talented student artists,” said Dr. Judith LaRocca, Superintendent of Valley Stream UFSD Thirteen. “Art education offers many benefits, including enhancing fine motor skills and developing critical and lateral thinking. Art also provides our students with an emotional outlet where painting or drawing can be used as an expression of their feelings.”

The New York State Art Teachers Association (NYSATA) sponsored the NYSSBA Student Art Exhibit.  To view the virtual exhibit please visit:
