Music and Art Discovery Goal: To foster an enduring interest in and love of the arts by providing children with a spontaneous and enjoyable experience of music and art of various types and origins.
How it works: Parent volunteers give 30-minute music or art presentations in the classroom.  Presentations are pre-packaged and include a script, media and all other necessary information and presentation aides. Each classroom is slated for three music and three art presentations throughout the school year. Through fun and engaging activities built into the presentations, children are encouraged to develop a positive relationship with music and art that will last a lifetime.
How to volunteer: Talk with your room coordinator or contact one of the committee chairs below.
