SUPPORT THE ARTS
Dear Marengo Parents,
Please don’t forget to support the Arts in our school!
The Visual, Theatre and Music Art Teachers instruct ALL students at Marengo, and with your donations, the Visual and Performing Arts Programs are able to stay robust and diverse each and every year.
The Visual Arts Program, especially, is a material-driven program; and your dollars truly help the program GROW and THRIVE with respect to creativity and conceptual exploration. This year, our students will be introduced to a brand new art course that explores The Language of Art through foundational exploration of the elements of Visual Art; and the influences of Figurative Language to spur meaning through clever word play, poems and cultural folklore. From painting to sculpting to fiber arts, Wish Night Funds have a considerable impact on the quality and diversity of the program.
With sincere gratitude, we thank you for helping us maintain exemplary Visual and Performing Arts Programs within our school district!
