Dear Parents and Guardians,
Welcome to the beginning of another great year -- 2015/16!
ARTS IN BASIC CURRICULUM GRANT FUNDED!
Great news! Cherryvale has received a grant from the SC Arts Commission in the amount of $11,509 each year for three years for a total of $34,527 to support the existing arts programs in music and visual art, and to help provide instruction in other art forms such as Theater, Dance, Creative Writing, and Media Arts. This year's funding will be used to bring in local artists to work with students and teachers, purchase musical instruments, resources and art supplies, assist with concerts and performances, and much more. If you are a community member who supports the arts and would like to partner with us, contact Mr. Palmer at Cherryvale to join the Cherryvale Arts Steering Committee and become an Arts patron.
