Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The number of Minnesotans who are able to participate and learn in the arts increases through exposure to music folk arts and 90% of students have a positive learning experience. Evaluation will occur through a participant questionnaire, an artist questionnaire, personal observation of activities, a follow-up meeting with project planners, interviews, and attendance numbers.

Measurable Outcome(s)

The Pioneer School Week at Roseau is a tradition for the third graders at Roseau, their parents and the community. The week and events in the filled gymnasium provide learning, fun and memories that last a lifetime. Teachers were so impressed with Ross Sutter, their students, and the support of the community in their adventure to learn about pioneers and their music, and to actually become pioneers for the day!
