Support the PTA, Support Arts Education

Hi Laurelwood Families,

We hope everyone enjoyed last week’s Ice Cream Social.  The PTA is able to host fun family events like the Ice Cream Social because of generous donations from our community.  We have more awesome events planned this year, including the Multicultural Festival later this month!

 

This year the PTA will pay for students to have four sessions of art class with Mrs. V.  We are also funding 12 sessions of Starting Arts during school hours.  Kindergarten – 2nd grade have dance classes, and 3rd – 5th graders have theater.  I strongly recommend this report by the Arts Education Partnership for a comprehensive explanation of why Arts in education is so important: http://www.aep-arts.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/Preparing-Students-for-the-Next-America-FINAL.pdf

 

If you have already submitted your donation, thank you!  If you haven’t, please donate today. The suggested amount is $200 for one student or $300 for two or more students, but we appreciate any amount you are comfortable contributing. .   All donations are strictly voluntary.  Donate online at: http://laurelwoodpta.wixsite.com/home/ways-to-give or send your donation in to the office or your child’s teacher.

 

Don’t forget to contact your employer about corporate matching for donations.  Thanks and remember your dollars make a difference!
