We’re spotlighting our 3rd grant winner of 2012! Red Cloud Community Schools is a great example of a school with a big idea that will help countless students immediately and for years to come.
Red Cloud Community Schools is currently in the process of strengthening the arts in regards to the schools’ curriculum. The funds will be used to purchase new stage curtains, which the schools believe will take multiple programs to the next level. The district is also planning to update the theater’s lighting fixtures, paint, and sound system.
The schools’ choir, band, drama and speech programs will all benefit from the updates. According to Americans for the Arts, these programs have many proven benefits including increased cognitive skills, increased creativity, and enhanced social skills.
