Photo detail

Martha Laliberte stands in an area used to hang children's artwork at East Elementary School on Friday. Laliberte previously had been the art teacher at Craig Intermediate School but will work in Sandrock and East elementary schools. She'll have some extra face time with students this year, as the Moffat County School Board approved a motion at its June 25 meeting to increase elementary school art classes from once every two weeks to once a week.
