Please join us in supporting PS 321’s Arts Programs. The PTA funding for the Arts Program includes 5 music/visual arts teachers; a freestyle repertory drama enrichment program, a dance enrichment program, a meet the writers program, an after school band and chorus program, art supplies and much more.
You may purchase tickets to attend the 2016 Arts Party using the form below or make a donation to the school’s arts programming. To attend the party, we ask for a minimum contribution of $250, but larger donations are greatly appreciated! Space is limited so please purchase your tickets as soon as you can. When you receive a confirmation it will include the address of the event.
Over the past eight years, we have lost over $1,500,000 in Department of Education funding, and we anticipate that historical losses will not be replaced, challenging schools to maintain programs with less support. These cuts put our precious arts programs at risk.
This year PTA funding for arts programs comes to $592,000, which includes four music/visual arts teachers; a freestyle Repertory Theater drama enrichment; a dance enrichment through Together in Dance; our Meet the Writers program; an after-school band and chorus program; art supplies; and much more! The PTA now spends $444,000 more to fund the arts than we did five years ago, which we have had to do to make up for the dramatic budget cuts.
Your support can make the difference to assure that children in our community have continued access to these creative enrichments.
Many thanks to Schwab of Park Slope for sponsoring the Arts Party.
