Gilmore Fine Arts students participate in the English Festival. It is a collaborative effort between public, private, and parochial schools in Kenosha, Racine, and its public libraries. The Festival is open to 7th and 8th Gilmore Fine Arts students who attend workshops built upon themes from six books. They must read and complete quizzes for all the books before attending the March Festival. Books may be checked out in the LMC or the Racine Public Library.
