Arts Education

The Importance For Your Kids and All Kids!


Research has shown that arts education:

  • Increases learning in all subject areas for all kids
  • Reduces truancy and behavior problems for all kids
  • Increases graduation rates
  • Raises students' GPA
  • And the list goes on...


The Harbor Council PTA is looking for an Arts Lead for the NMUSD / Harbor Council PTA.  We need YOU...  A person who believes in and is willing to fight for arts education for the entire district.  Become the Harbor Council's cheerleader and disseminator of information regarding the importance of arts education.  Please contact Vicki Waldo at vwaldo@cox.net if interested in this wonderful opportunity and to learn more about the position.  Thank you.
