Sponsorships Awarded for Dance, Theatre and Music Programs

RCCAAF has awarded $4,000 to local high school arts programs for their creative ways to teach during the unprecedented pandemic school year.  Each year the Foundation offers sponsorships to high school arts programs to expand, enhance or create arts programs and projects for their students.  This year, given the virtual learning mandate for most schools, teachers needed to explore new methods and/or use of equipment to help in their teaching efforts. 

The instructors truly grateful for the program assistance, as reflected in the following responses to their approved applications:

“Wow. Thank you. Truly. Thank you. Ina time that has been a real downer, this is a much needed, amazing boost. Thank you so very much.”

C. Kiley, EHS

“We are so grateful to live in a City that values the arts as well as arts education for our children, and continues to support them in difficult times.”

B. Encina, LOHS

“Thank you to you and your committee for your continued support. You truly make a difference in our community and the lives of our students. We are so grateful!”

H. De Guzman, EHS
