The Northfield Fine Arts Boosters provide resources and promote community support for the Fine Arts at Northfield High School.
The Northfield Fine Arts Boosters believe that strong and vibrant Fine Arts programs in our schools are a vital component of our childrens' lives and educations. We seek your help in ensuring that all of Northfield High School's students have access to the programs they deserve.
Last year, member contributions were used to support a variety of teacher-initiated Fine Arts activities. We made a substantial grant to support the 2nd annual Latino Play Festival, which was later featured on KARE-11. We helped support the transportation needs of the band and the choir. Other grants went toward the purchase of several new band uniforms, a third display case for the high school art wing, and a three-quarter size bass for the orchestra.
Student involvement in Fine Arts has been linked with cognitive gains in math, reading, critical thinking and verbal skills. Arts education can improve motivation, confidence, and teamwork. A 2005 Rand report argues that Fine Arts connect us "more deeply to the world and open new ways of seeing." Fine Arts education not only brings cognitive benefits, but also enriches a student's life and brings him or her into deeper contact with what it means to be human.
Instruments for All
Through our Instruments for All program, we aim to put an instrument into the hands of every Northfield student wanting to participate in the band or orchestra program. We accept donations or new or used instruments, and also cash donations to help with the repair of donated instruments.
