The Village Times Herald is asking teachers in the Three Village Central School District to submit creative work from their students.

The June 7 edition of the paper will include a pull-out section called Pens & Pencils featuring selections of art, prose and poetry provided by the elementary, junior high schools and high school in the Three Village school district.

In the past, we have relied on teachers from the English and art departments of the schools to select and forward those art and writing projects they feel are worthy of inclusion. We try to include — space permitting — as many representative samples as possible from grades K through 12.

We have always received more submissions than would fit in the available space, so please make no promises to any students that their work will be included in the supplement. We will do our best to publish the remaining submissions in the Arts & Lifestyles section of the TBR newspapers throughout the summer.

Submissions must be received by Friday, May 18. Teachers can email art, prose and poetry to [email protected] or mail to: The Village Times Herald, 185 Route 25A, Setauket, NY 11733. Any questions, please call Rita Egan at 631-751-7744.
