Kelly Dee, visual and performing arts curriculum leader shared, “This achievement results from families, teachers, and administrators working together to provide an excellent arts program in and through music.┬áMusic education is vital for cultural enrichment. It exposes children to different styles of music from around the world, helping to foster an appreciation and understanding of diverse cultures. It also provides a platform for creative expression, allowing children to express themselves in a way that words often cannot.”
