MUSICAL INSTRUMENT COLLECTION
We will be collecting district owned instruments so that they can be repaired, and sanitized. You will return it to your child's school when you go to collect their personal belongings. Please remember to return yours so it is ready for Fall.

". . . the arts have been an inseparable part of the human journey; indeed, we depend on the arts to carry us toward the fullness of our humanity. We value them for themselves, and because we do, we believe knowing and practicing them is fundamental to the healthy development of our children's minds and spirits. That is why, in any civilization - ours included - the arts are inseparable from the very meaning of the term 'education.' We know from long experience that no one can claim to be truly educated who lacks basic knowledge and skills in the arts."
