Life of a Hartford Performs Program:

Having arts integrated into the classroom:

  • Brings out things in students that teachers don’t always get to see
  • Allows students to connect with content and subjects in a different way
  • Give students a chance to be different – to be and think out of the box
  • Give teachers a fresh or new point of view
  • Give teachers tools to work with and bring art into the classrooms

Quarterly Meeting Feedback:

  • We really enjoyed the RE-Center trainings and workshops and want more of that
  • What are ways to involve parents more – Can we have an evening with food bring together artists and families for sharing?
  • We enjoy the culture of having good food and bringing people together for discussion
