Who says students and teachers are the only ones hard at work during the school year? Not us! While we've certainly kept ourselves busy for the first half of the 2013/2014 school year, we've set our sights on another fundraising goal for the spring semester.

We're aiming to raise $10,000 between now and June 30th for the art program at Community Partnership School. Why art?

Despite mounting evidence of its role in student achievement, arts education is disappearing in the schools that need it most. In the vast majority of public schools, arts programs – and teachers- are in trouble more than ever, despite the growing body of evidence showing a powerful link between arts education, student achievement, and teacher performance.

At CPS, we don’t believe the arts are expendable, but we need your support to ensure that we can continue excellent programming.

1. Students who study art are four times more likely to be recognized for academic achievement and three times more likely to be awarded for school attendance.
2. Arts and music education programs are mandatory in countries that rank consistently among the highest for math and science test scores, like Japan, Hungary, and the Netherlands.
3. Researchers find that sustained learning in music and theatre correlates strongly with higher achievement in both math and reading.
4. Multiple studies have concluded that curricular and extracurricular art studies and activities help keep high-risk dropout students stay in school.
5. New brain research shows that not only does music improve skills in math and reading, but it promotes creativity, social development, personality adjustment, and self-worth.

The art program gives our Pre-K through 5th grade students the opportunity to express their creativity, which is an essential part of the well-rounded, top-notch education they receive at Community Partnership School. Please consider a donation to the art program. Your support means so much to us!
