National Arts in Education Week

This week (September 13-19) has been designated National Arts in Education Week. The arts are an essential part of a complete education, no matter if it happens in the home, school, or community. Students of all ages - from kindergarten to college to creative aging programs -
benefit from artistic learning, innovative thinking, and creativity. 

We would like for everyone in our community to celebrate the artistic endeavors of our students this week. Take a minute to ask about their creations, and let them know how much you appreciate their work. Also, be sure to offer a kind word of encouragement to our art teachers. Their expertise is certainly a great asset to our school district and to the well-rounded education we aim to offer.

National Arts in Education week is a national celebration recognizing the arts importance to a well-rounded education. Designated by Congress in 2010, the celebration is designated to bring attention of this cause to elected officials and educational decision makers across the country and to support equitable access to the arts for all students.
