Dear Supporters of Young Audiences,
My name is Erica and I am a seventh grader at Henry W. Longfellow Elementary School in the Cleveland Metropolitan School District. Thank you for letting the arts stay at our schools. Last year we had musicians come to our school, and that gave us something to look forward to. We are one of the lucky schools to even have this program. It makes kids more creative. Everyone could learn more each day. I hope the arts continue.
Every child in every school has the right to a well-rounded education, of which the arts are an essential ingredient. The arts promote the health and well-being of children, including academic and personal growth, critical thinking skills and analytical skills, and the motivation to stay in school and excel.
