Arts in the Schools
ACHF Arts Education
As stated earlier in the application, due to our geographical location, it is not often that we get the opportunity see productions of a professional caliber. (2. Overcoming barriers to accessing high-quality arts activities.). 1. We have included a survey that all participating students will be required to complete after the performance. 2. Since we have a small, young cast, our goal is to retain and build upon this core and get them involved by sharing what they gained from the CDT experience, allowing them a voice in the preliminary planning (show selection, rehearsal schedule, performance dates) of next year's production through spring meetings.
