School is off to a great start! The school kits arrived :) , Kindergarten and TK parents have already signed up to help with art docent lessons, band students are anxiously anticipating their first, awkward attempts at music, and our stalwart artists-in-residence are busy setting up for another fabulous year of art instruction on campus. Thank you to the many families who donated to BVEF at the rapid registration event and are already on board in making this all possible. We encourage those of you who haven’t yet made your donation to do so today. We hope to include every family in our district in supporting arts in the schools. We need everyone! You can donate BIG, (the suggested donation is $125 per child), or you can donate small, (you can set up a modest monthly payment using the “subscribe” button on the right) — give whatever you can, and join in on this rewarding mission of making art happen for the kids of Bennett Valley.
