The Arts at Frankford

Inaugural Coffee House at Frankford

“Thursday night was the big one for a lot of the students at Frankford High School as family, friends, alumni and the public streamed into the main entrance to take in the presentations.  The Program was well organized and used all of the first floor of the main building for every kind of display and performance starting at 5 PM.

This was the first of what is to be an annual event for the school.” – Frankford Gazette

“It has been exciting to watch our students express themselves through various media and experience a great deal of success by engaging in our expanded arts curriculum,” Dr. Michael Calderone

Pride of the Pioneers
“One wouldn’t know school was not in session walking into Frankford High School the night of Thursday, Dec. 14.

The school was packed with students, parents and faculty exploring the hallways, classrooms and auditorium to appreciate a wide variety of student-created art.

The night marked the school’s first Arts Coffee House, meant to celebrate the arts of Frankford students. Even though it was a new event for the school, the amount of student participation made it seem like a long-running tradition.

Approximately 150 students participated or had work on display at the event, which displayed art forms ranging from film, live musical performances, ceramics, photography, culinary arts, paintings, dramatic performances and more.
