Mrs. Petersen said, “This year has been a year of firsts for r. arrales

and his is my first year as choir director, and his first year teaching here in Conway. It’s been such a fun experience seeing the students learn the music, choreography, how set design works, how to run lights and sound. It’s also been great to see the cast get along with each other and to see the leadership that not just upper classmen, but that students of all ages are showing!” Come show your support for the music department and watch a show that you won’t want to miss!

Conway hosts annual Clean-Up Day on Saturday ALEXA HIGBEE CHRONICLES@LCR1.ORG On Saturday, the city of Conway will be having a Clean-Up Day. The city will place dumpsters on South Main Street for the residents of Conway to put their garbage in. The dumpsters will

stay on South Main Street from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will only be open to Conway residents. They will be first come first serve, so you will want to come early! Although City Hall wants the community to utilize the dumpsters there are a few restrictions such as, large appliances, tires,

batteries, yard waste (limbs, trees, grass, etc.), and other items may be subject to approval. This event is held every couple of years in order to keep Conway a clean town. City Council’s goal is to help clean up the city. They are hoping to make it more appealing to the eye and a

healthier environment. City Council hosts this event because they want the residents of Conway to be able to declutter and dispose of things that are taking up unneeded space on their property. “After the clean-up day, the city will be enforcing the ordinance that deals with

cleaning up properties,” City Hall stated. “So please take advantage of this day!” The city of Conway hopes that all the residents participate in this clean up and take advantage of the opportunity. They also encourage anyone outside of city limits to help a friend or family member in this event

in order to make Conway a cleaner city. If you would like to get involved and clean up the city you can help a friend or neighbor dispose of their garbage, walk the city limits and pick up any trash in the ditches and roads, or talk to City Council about other ways to get involved.

Showing off their work NATASHA SHANZ & LOGAN SCHMIDT CHRONICLES@LCR1.ORG Conway High School students recently competed in the Summit Art Conference competition. On Feb. 3, there was a Summit Art Conference competition at Fordland High School that started at 9 a.m. and ended around noon. Students at Conway sent 63 pieces to the contest. “The purpose of the contest is for our art students to compete against the other art students in other schools. The contest was a great way to show creativity and potential in their artwork and to see what others have been doing with their artwork,” Conway High School art teacher William Schoelles said. He continued, “I think the students gain a lot competing in the contest. They gain confidence if they win, and they get to see what other students from the area are creating and what they need to improve on to get better at their artwork.” Mr. Schoelles stated, “The best part of the contest was seeing the artwork and watching our students interact with students from our conference.” Conway High School art teacher Taylor Hopkins, another sponsoring teacher, said, “I really enjoy getting students to display their work next to other districts art and compare their interests with others. I also love the thrill of victory the students sometimes get.” Mr. Schoelles said, “After the contest the winners received ribbons.

Kylie Fletcher prepares for a high school contest. Students took home 13 awards: there were 2 first places, 5 second places, and 6 third places.” Hopkins said, “On May 4, there will be another art contest at Alpha Rho Tao that I will be attending.” Paige Taylor is a senior at Conway High School. Paige sent two entries in the photography contest and one entry in mixed media. “I decided to enter my artwork in the contest because making art is very relaxing, and it’s something I enjoy doing,” she said.

Alex Curry is also a senior at Conway High School who was in the contest. Alex entered four pieces into the contest. “I entered my artwork into the contest because it allowed me to develop and grow my skills as an artist. Also I have always loved making art since I was little. Furthermore, I have always gotten inspiration from friends, family, and nature,” Curry said about the contest.
