Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The number of Minnesotans who are engaged in arts education and learning opportunities increases. The Maple River community will be invited into our school to show them what students in K-5 will produce through artwork and the use of various mediums with direction by professional artist. Students will lead their family members through the Art Fair and explain the art that is displayed. Each student will be responsible for a least one art project to display in May 2012.An evaluation survey with 5 questions will be given to each household and staff member in May. The principal will create, distribute and tabulate the results. This Art Fair will attract at least 200 parents and community members of all ages and will be judged positively by 84% or more of those who attend, as measured by an exit survey.
